On Wednesday, September 9, a Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine number 636 came into force. It was adopted on August 26. The Resolution is related to the certain rights and freedoms of internally displaced persons.
According to lawyers of “Restoring Donbas”, targeted financial assistance to the displaced will be paid regardless of the number of cars owned by the family. Previously, if the person had two or more vehicles, targeted assistance would not be imposed.
In addition, new resolution fixes clear mechanism of obtaining of the certificate by underage children, who travel without parents. Document states that in such case the application can be submitted by legal representative of an orphan or a child deprived of parental care (guardianship, foster parent, the administration of the medical institution, school or other institution, where the child lives) or service for identification the location of children without legal representative.
There is a positive fact for IDPs. The new Decree has changed the way of the resumption of social benefits (which are supposed to IDPs). In case of the renewal of the certificate, it is renewed from the date of termination of its charge (not from the date of extension of the certificate).
However, nowadays, internally displaced person has to declare «non-involvement in the crime, or complicity in the crime» in order to obtain the certificate. More details about this innovation are in the Cabinet’s decision.
Moreover, the form of the certificate itself (taking the IDPs on the account) has been changed.
