Nowadays, the government still carries out the policy of discrimination against IDPs from Donbas. It was stated by volunteers of the “Restoring Donbas” community initiative during the Coordination Meeting of organizations, which deal with IDPs in Kyiv. The event was organized by Oleksadnra Magurova, the adviser of the Ministry of Social Policy on IDPs issues in Kyiv, and specialized departments of the Kyiv City State Administration.
During the meeting, representatives of the city state administration and public organizations discussed issues of social protection of IDPs in Kyiv (including those, who were added to the so-called “lists of Security Service of Ukraine”, payments of pensions to IDPs and residents of the uncontrolled territories, identification of IDPs in Oschadbank, housing provision, results of the Program of support, social adaptation and reintegration of Ukrainian citizens, who have moved from the uncontrolled territories and ATO area, and other urgent issues.
Volunteers of the «Restoring Donbas» expressed position of the organization on the following issues:
– to stop illegal actions of the authorities in terms of groundless invalidity of IDP’s certificate as well as termination of social payments and pension to IDPs based on “lists of Security Service of Ukraine”;
– to annul the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of June 8, 2016 No. 365 “Some questions of implementation of social payments to internally displaced persons”, which discriminates against internally displaced persons, restricts their rights and freedoms;
– to introduce a mechanism of paying pensions to citizens, who reside on the uncontrolled territories. It will allow them to get pension, which was earned during their life without IPD’s certificate (without making them pass the demarcation line).
Let us remind, yesterday, during the roundtable “Social rights of IDPs: the right to work and social security” organized by the “Restoring Donbas” community initiative, experts noted that it hasn’t been created an effective state system, which ensures social protection of the citizens affected by military conflict, during the last three years.
