The conference “Restoration of Ukrainian East: the process of IDPs integration with hosting communities” hold on in Kyiv. The Minister of temporary occupied territories and IDPs, Deputy Minister of Social Policy, foreign diplomats and IDPs shared their opinions as for solving the problems of IDPs as well as success stories of IDPs in new communities.
Right now we’re finishing the digital register of IDPs. The project partner is the International Organization for Migration (IOM). We suppose to launch the register not later than July, – Vitaly Muschinin, Deputy Minister of Social Policy, reported during his speech at the conference.
He also said that all social benefits for IDPs would be resumed at an accelerated pace. According to him, the recent resumption of payments was delayed due to “organizational issues”, such as the establishment of commissions to check IDPs residences.
We do hope to resume all social payment up to 20 July as it was determined by the Cabinet of Ministers, – he said.
Earlier, it was reported that Canada will allocate grants to improve the adaptation of IDPs into new communities.
