Yesterday, on June 22nd, the employees of Slov’yansk office of the project “Advocacy and Legal Assistance for Internally Displaced Persons”, implemented by the CF “Right to Protection” supported by the UN High Comission for Refugees (UNHCR), the lawyer Anna Bukreyeva and the monitor Natalia Shevchenko visited district center Artemove. The city is subordinated to Toretsk city council of Donetsk Region.
The purpose of the trip is an information campaign “Increasing legal awareness of the population affected in the military conflict in the east of the country: appeals of citizens to national and international courts on the matters of destruction of housing.”
“Look at the photo – this is only a small part of what we saw. People are in despair, but try not to panic and they rely on our help,” tells Anna Bukreyeva. “So almost every day we go to various towns and villages, meet with people whose homes have suffered from the attacks. For example, in Artemove 10 families received clarification, legal advice and recommendations as for the documents necessary for application to the court.”
