The program will be implemented in the key for IDPs settlements, which will be determined by the Crimea SOS and the Ministry of Social Policy.
Moreover, the Program assumes that at the regional level advisers will operate as a local contact point for IDPs and facilitate the exchange of information between the Social Policy Ministry and regions, they will solve along with police and local councils the issues of accommodation of IDPs.
Advisers at the central level will act as a channel of communication on IDPs at the regional level in order to convey the problems of IDPs to higher levels, provide support to their colleagues in the Ministry to respond to the requests from IDPs, representatives of NGOs and representatives of vulnerable groups.
Social Policy Minister Pavlo Rozenko has noted that the Government has been closely working for a long time with international and national NGOs on addressing issues of internally displaced persons and also praised the proposed Program.
