Created by the Government of Ukraine Interagency Coordinating Headquarters has provided accommodation for more than 830,000 people from Donetsk and Luhansk regions in other regions of the country. Interagency Coordinating Headquarters’ departments are working around the clock to solve urgent problems on transportation and social security of citizens that were forced to leave their homes in eastern Ukraine due to the actions of pro-Russian terrorists.
So, as of today, thanks to the work of the Interagency Coordinating Headquarters and regional centers 834,000 persons from some territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have been resettled to other regions of Ukraine. The Government of Ukraine emphasizes that the authorities are doing their utmost to ensure help for every person who applied for it.
In total, as of May 14, over 1.2 million people have been registered as IDPs from certain territories of Donbas and the temporarily-occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. More than 300,000 families, who turned to social protection, are receiving cash assistance from the state.
Citizens will be able to receive all necessary information on a specially created website for internally displaced persons vpo.gov.ua.
Recall that in June 2014 at the basis of the State Emergency Service the Government of Ukraine established the Interagency Coordinating Headquarters for ensuring social security of Ukrainian citizens displaced from the temporarily-occupied territories and regions of the anti-terrorist operation.
