UAH 5.1 million will be allocated for legal assistance to Ukrainians illegally imprisoned in Russia and their families, as well as for solving problems of social adaptation, rehabilitation and realization of other rights and needs of those released from captivity.

Such a decision was made at a meeting of the Interdepartmental Commission for consideration of issues related to the recognition of persons deprived of their liberty as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine and the implementation of measures aimed at their social protection, the Office of the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights reported on Telegram.

“During the meeting, the Interdepartmental Commission considered 62 cases. A decision was made to pay UAH 100,000 in assistance to 51 persons. Thus, another UAH 5.1 million will be allocated for legal assistance to illegally imprisoned citizens of Ukraine and their families, as well as to address issues of social adaptation, rehabilitation and implementation of other rights and needs of people released from captivity,” the report reads.

As Ukrinform reported, the Ombudsman's Office stated that the government does not fully comply with the law on social protection of citizens affected by the Chornobyl disaster.
