National police to set chaplaincy service
Interior Minister Arsen Avakov announced the establishment of a military clergy service as part of the National Police.
This was reported in the press service of the Interior Ministry
According to the Minister, on average, a police officer witnesses about 200 critical situations during their career.
"Law enforcement officers also need help and support, so the chaplaincy activities will be expanded including the police," Avakov said.
"We have introduced regular positions of military priests in battalions. In the case when a guardsman performs combat missions in the field, we have developed and manufactured a mobile spiritual support complex," he said.
The service of military chaplains operates in the National Guard, the State Border Guard Service.
