  • Government addresses the issue of preventing evictions of vulnerable categories of IDPs from temporary accommodation

    On 29 March, the Cabinet of Ministers has amended the Procedure for the formation of housing stock intended for temporary residence, accounting and provision of such housing for temporary residence of internally displaced persons, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on 29 April 2022, No. 495.

    The draft of the relevant document was developed by the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories pursuant to the Law of Ukraine No. 3446-IX of 8 November 2023 “On amendments to the Law of Ukraine ‘On ensuring the rights and freedoms of internally displaced persons’ concerning some issues of providing internally displaced persons with housing for temporary residence”.

    This resolution is aimed at providing certain categories of IDPs with additional guarantees to prevent their forced eviction from temporary accommodation during the period of martial law and within 6 months after its termination or cancellation.

    Thus, IDPs belonging to vulnerable categories of citizens will not be subject to the restriction on the period of residence provided for in paragraph eight of part 1 of Article 9 of the Law of Ukraine “On ensuring the rights and freedoms of internally displaced persons”.

    These changes are aimed at strengthening the guarantees of legal and social protection of internally displaced persons.
