PERSONS WHO HAVE BEEN ILLEGALLY DEPRIVED OF THEIR PERSONAL LIBERTY AND RELEASED ON DECEMBER 29TH CONTINUE TO GET COMPREHENSIVE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE
After the release, civilians were sent to Feofaniya Clinical Hospital, where they underwent a medical examination and received psychological assistance. In addition, persons were interviewed about their needs and made appropriate profiles. The Ministry for Veterans Affairs is currently coordinating the work of all relevant departments, which should provide assistance to the released.
Currently 36 people have been transferred from Feofaniya Clinical Hospital to the hospital «Lisova Poliana» and 16 more to the hospital for veterans of war in Tsybli. Notably, during the first days of release 10 persons refused assistance and support and checked out from Feofaniya Clinical Hospital.
The process of restoring documents that are missing from some of the released ones is ongoing. In particular, 6 driver's licenses were restored recently.
There is also a selection of jobs, with the provision of temporary housing for those in need.
In addition, the issue of providing medical assistance, including dental prosthetics, is being addressed. According to the results of a medical examination, it was found that people released from captivity have many dental problems (48 persons). The Ministry for Veterans Affairs, in turn, managed to agree with partners on the provision of grant aid, in particular, in dental prosthetics.
«We have collected all the data on the needs and desires of the released persons. Given their strengths and capabilities, we are looking for employment places for them in their specialty or previous experience. In addition, it is a job where they are offered housing and decent wages,» said the Head of the Department of the Ministry for Veterans Affairs Serhii Mokreniuk.
Work continues on the renewal of passports of the Citizen of Ukraine for those who need it.
The Ministry for Veterans Affairs, jointly with international partners, has developed a Memo for persons released after illegal deprivation of personal liberty. These instructions provide step-by-step actions after returning from unlawful detention (captivity) for medical, psychological, legal and social assistance.
