According to the Minister of Social Politics nearly 400 000 internally displaced persons have their social benefits suspended. Later on the payments were partially resumed. Today, about 350 thousand people who are listed as internally displaced persons do not receive their pensions, and more than 15 thousand people who were to receive other social benefits, do not get their social benefits.
According to the Minister, the main reason for this is the inconsistency of legal documents of CMU and the Law on IDPs’ Rights.
Implementation of these issues was completed on 8, June by adoption of two Decrees of Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine: №352 (procedure of IDPs registration) and № 506 and Resolution №365, which amended the Decree №637 about the procedure of social IDPs payments, – the Minister explained.
As it was reported earlier the Cabinet of Ministers instructed the local authorities to resume payments to IDPs.
