UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons Chaloka Beyani will visit Ukraine in the period from September 1 until September 9 for meetings with government representatives, civil society and families of displaced persons, the UN news center said on Wednesday.
Beyani said he would assess progress made in protection and assistance to internally displaced persons and would hold consultations on outstanding problems and possible solutions.
He also said he was closely monitoring the position of internally displaced persons in Ukraine who continue to experience difficulties with the use of their right to social benefits, free movement, accommodation and jobs.
Whenever it is impossible to bring internally displaced persons back home, their problems should be resolved by means of integration with local communities or resettlement to other regions, the UN rapporteur said.
Earlier reported the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of ATO and IDP would hold the meeting to discuss IDPs’ issues.
