A chairman of the commission verifying the real residence of internally displaced family from Luhansk demanded a bribe – 4,000 UAH to accommodate them in a compound for IDPs. The official representative of the commission required from IDPs documents confirming the place of their residence registration in Luhansk which is absolutely impossible as Luhansk considered to be temporary non-controlled by Ukrainian government territory. The chairman of the commission promised not to pay attention to the missing documentation and to help IDP family to settle down for remuneration. The head of the family filed a complaint with Kharkiv regional prosecutor’s office. The prosecutor in fact of the case opened criminal proceedings and shortly would be announced a suspicion and the measures of restraint would be chosen.
