“We look forward to participation and assistance of our people's deputies, members of the Committees in receiving suggestions and comments. As legislators, as elected representatives of the Ukrainian people, they are well aware of these issues and the needs of our citizens. At the same time, we have also sent a draft Action Plan to non-governmental organizations that address the issues of Crimea and Donbas. Participation and proposals of all interested parties are vital for us, first of all, those who live with the issues of territories of Ukraine temporarily occupied by Russia, protection of the rights of citizens, who were either forced to stay there due to various life circumstances, or were forced to leave their homes because of the war,” noted in the Ministry for Reintegration.

Let us recall, that on May 19 the Ministry for Reintegration published the draft Action Plan.

From April 17 till April 24 of this year, several dozens of non-governmental organizations and experts have sent their proposals for consideration within the framework of the development of the draft Action Plan of the Ministry for Reintegration.

The Ministry is grateful to all non-governmental organizations, experts and human rights defenders, who joined the cooperation, as well as to the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
