168 SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY THE EMPLOYEES OF MOBILE ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICE LOCATED AT EECP "CHONHAR"
In particular, here they provide services to people with hearing loss due to a unique system that has been installed here as a pilot project.
Oksana Koliada, Minister for Veterans Affairs, Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine, examined the Center located at the border with the temporarily occupied Crimea and familiarized herself with its work.
“Due to this Center, Ukrainians living in the temporarily occupied Crimea have the opportunity to get all services here on the spot, without wasting money and time travelling further inland. The pilot project that has been launched here for people with hearing loss is really easy to use and effective. And I think it should be supported at the state level in order to apply this experience in other institutions and establishments as well,” said Oksana Koliada.
The sign language interpreters who work in the Center are located in Kyiv, they can help people to solve a problem or, for example, to communicate with an employee of Administrative Service Centre remotely, through video as it already happens on Chonhar.
The Minister, together with representatives of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Human Rights, Deoccupation and Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, also inspected the work of the regime and service zones operating on the EECP.
The Minister also asked the staff of the Border Guard Service about the acting resolution developed by the Ministry for Veterans Affairs on a simplified procedure for crossing the contact line for adolescents. The simplified procedure came into force on the administrative line with the Peninsula on February 9, and according to the border guards has already received positive feedback from those who travel from the occupied Peninsula.
“It is important for us that children and adolescents can cross the EECP as easily as possible and come to study in Ukrainian educational institutions and stay in the Ukrainian educational and cultural space,” said the Minister.
