An IDP in Sloviansk (Donetsk region) defended her right in court to receive social benefits despite the ownership of a destroyed house reported by BF ‘Right to Protection”.
Two years ago, a woman left the combat zones and moved to Sloviansk where she had a small house. The woman got the status of internally displaced persons and issued the aid housing.
However, the management of social protection department sued a lawsuit as the IDP turned out to have a house out of the zone ATO. According to current legislation, the IDP had to return to the state 9,000UAH and to pat court fee. The process lasted several months.
Natalia Alyabieva, the Lawyer of CF “Right to Protection” said that the woman in the court did not mind that she had a house outside the ATO zone, but the house was destroyed and it was impossible to live in it. The court also took into account the certificate provided by the doctors that Svetlana could not reside in the uninhabitable house.
State program of Donbass restoration provided repair and reconstruction of housing for IDPs.
