UKRAINIANS RELEASED FROM THE TERRITORIES OF DONETSK AND LUHANSK OBLASTS TEMPORARILY OCCUPIED BY RUSSIA WILL RECEIVE MEDICAL AND SOCIAL ASSISTANCE
The period of medical observation for two weeks has ended today for citizens, who were released from ORDLO (occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts) on April 16. None of those under medical observation have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The Ministry for Reintegration, within its scope of activity, ensured the process of meeting and staying of the released citizens in the medical observation.
In accordance with a pre-established procedure, 12 persons in need of additional medical care were transferred to one of the hospitals in Donetsk Oblast. Two servicemen of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine were sent to a military hospital.
The rest of the citizens refused from acute medical care and, with the assistance of the Ministry for Reintegration, are sent to their families in different regions of the country.
“Together with colleagues from other government bodies, the Ministry is working now on ensuring that people return to normal life as quickly as possible. We will continue to accompany each of the released persons in order to provide medical and psychological assistance, assistance in completing the paperwork, adaptation, one-time financial aid and the like. These issues are within the competence of various authorities, so we intend to build it on the principle of conditional "single window" so that people would receive all necessary administrative services and appropriate support as comfortably as possible,” said the Deputy Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories Ihor Yaremenko.
