Other 512 persons released from the Russian captivity, and 654 families of persons kept now unlawfully by Russia, may receive UAH 100,000 of state aid each.
This decision was taken on July 31, 2023, at the meeting of the Special Commission at the Ministry for Integration that the Crimean Human Rights Group is a member of.
The Ministry for Integration will transfer the funds to them against receiving their applications and required documents.
The commission also decided to allocate funds for reimbursing the costs of professional legal assistance to 2 citizens kept in the deprivation of liberty sites. In addition, the Commission recognized 78 persons who had submitted applications and supporting documents as members of families of prisoners.
To remind: the Commission was established in December 2022 to enforce Law of Ukraine “On Social and Legal Protection of Persons Deprived of Personal Freedom as a Result of Armed Aggression Against Ukraine, and Members of Their Families.” It is a successor of an interdepartmental commission that functioned in accordance with the CMU resolution.
The Crimean Human Rights Group was re-elected to the Commission.
“This is the same commission where relatives of those deprived of liberty for political reasons in the occupied Crimea can apply. There are changes, including a new application form. The Crimean Human Rights Group is a member of the new commission, as of the previous one. If you need advice on how the relatives of those being kept in the occupied Crimea, including those abducted by Russia and deported to Crimea from the Kherson and Zaporizhia regions, may apply, please contact the CHRG on Facebook or email to: [email protected]”, Ms. Olha Skrypnyk, the Head of CHRG Board, urged.
