The state continues to care for the former prisoners, who were released on December 29, after their discharge from Feofaniya Clinical Hospital.

Currently, all those who returned from captivity at the end of last year have been provided with medical services for examination and treatment. Some of them have undergone complicated ophthalmic and otolaryngology surgeries. All the released persons were treated and rehabilitated at the State Institution "Ukrainian Hospital for Veterans of War "LisovaPoliana" and at the Ukrainian State Medical and Social Centre for Veterans of War. Psychologists have been working with them during the treatment and rehabilitation period.

The Ministry for Veterans Affairs, together with regional state administrations, has provided more than a thousand offers to released persons at their place of residence, particularly in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Volyn, Khmelnitsky, Donetsk and Vinnytsia Oblasts. Usually, these are family type hostels. Also, the State Employment Service worked with the released persons, provided proposals for vacancies in accordance with their specialty, qualifications and desires.

Approximately half of the applicants have already returned to their normal lives by choosing or offering options or finding their own.

"We have worked individually with everyone, collecting wishes and analysing opportunities. We don't have a single person who hasn't been offered solutions for work and accommodation," said SerhiiMokreniuk, the Head of the Department at MVTOT.

There are released persons who cannot yet return to a fulfilling life as they haven't yet received their renewed documents or require specific treatment. They are in a Kyiv hostel, and the state and non-governmental organizations cover their daily expenses. They will stay there as long as it takes to provide them with full assistance.

Finding new jobs and housing for the rest and collecting paperwork for monetary compensation is a matter of weeks. However, not everyone is ready to make a decision about moving on so quickly. "People have been in captivity, now they are offered three to five options and it is difficult for them to choose. They postpone their decision to leave medical facilities and it can create certain inconveniences," said SerhiiMokreniuk.

In general, all 64 civilians, who were released, were provided with full medical care, each of them was provided with psychological rehabilitation.

The restoration of the passport of the citizen of Ukraine has been organized for 25 persons.

12 persons restored their driver's license.

5 persons were provided with detailed consultations on the possibility of renewing or entering higher education institutions, and one person is attending courses to confirm the qualifications of a doctor.

43 people were offered job offers.

25 people were offered several accommodations.

After rehabilitation, 47 persons have already decided on their place of residence and work, and the rest will be accommodated in a hostel in Kyiv until the final decision on the place of residence and work.
