Here we present digest on IDPs and conflict affected persons for October prepared by R2P.  This digest has been produced with the assistance of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in the frame of the project Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to the Internally Displaced Population.

Highlights:

  • The demand for legal assistance from R2P with pensions is increasing, constituting 90% of all secondary legal assistance cases in October.
  • After the Supreme Court ruled favorably in R2P’s model case, the courts of lower instances resumed consideration of pension cases. The number of court cases has substantially increased, from 20-30 cases per month in the summer time to 99 in October, as a result.
  • Under Cabinet of Ministers (CMU) Resolution 795, persons who did not update their passport photos within a month of turning 25 or 45 must now obtain ID cards, which is more complicated (mainly, because it is time consuming).

Here we present digest on IDPs and conflict affected persons for September prepared by R2P.  This digest has been produced with the assistance of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in the frame of the project Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to the Internally Displaced Population.

Highlights:

● On September 4 the Supreme Court ruled in favor of an R2P beneficiary in a model case. The Supreme Court judgment should make the court procedure easier in cases on the restoration of pensions. This has already been proved by the decisions in 12 cases decided since September 2018.
● Reconstruction at Mariinka and Stanytsia Luhanska EECPs has led to improvements in waiting conditions and, at Stanytsia Luhanska, turnover capacity, but infrastructure and other improvements are still needed at all checkpoints.

This digest has been produced with the assistance of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in the frame of the project Advocacy, Protection and Legal Assistance to the Internally Displaced Population. Digest is available in Ukrainian and English languages.

In March, all entry-exit checkpoints (EECPs) to the non-government controlled area (NGCA) extended their working hours from 8:00-17:00 to 7:00-18:30. However, there was a mismatch in working hours for a few days at the Marinka and Maiorske EECPs because the NGCA-side EECPs worked only at 8:00-17:30. The issue was resolved.

Demining activities began in the vicinity of Maiorske EECP in March.

Residents of Novotroitske, Donetsk oblast, report anonymously that military representatives deploy military equipment within the town and recommend residents in the vicinity move out of their homes due to danger. The military representatives then occupy the civilian homes when the owners leave.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”4324″][vc_single_image image=”4331″]
