“Of course, in Ukraine, where the number of unemployed is around 10% of the economically active population, internally displaced persons (IDPs) is not the only social category that needs the support of the state. Not the only but perhaps the most vulnerable, since the problem of social insecurity of immigrants accumulate more and psychological problems associated with stress from his experiences of combat and loss of property and social status, break with family and friends… an Important factor of vulnerability of IDPs and the attitude eurobarometers authorities to the urgent problems of immigrants”, – said Medvedchuk.

In his opinion, the problem of housing for IDPs could be solved by adoption of the state program of preferential crediting of immigrants.

Medvedchuk also sure that official Kiev is not only not doing anything to solve the problems of IDPs, but also complicates the lives of migrants, violating their right to free movement and choice of residence, requiring the establishment of a certificate of IDPs, forcing to stand in queues in banks for the procedure of personal identification.
