Brief description of the project: Since 2014, Ukraine was included in the list of leading countries by the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to the conflict in the Donbass and the annexation of Crimea. As of 01/01/2019 according to official figures, 1,512,435 IDPs are registered. Despite the fact that the problem of IDPs in Ukraine has existed for more than 5 years, the issue of compensation for moral and material damage to victims has not been resolved at the state level.2016, there has been judicial practice to compensate moral damage at the expense of the Russian Federation in favor of IDPs, but there is no current mechanism for the enforcement of these decisions. During this time, state and local authorities have not formed and implemented integrated effective measures to ensure the rights and legitimate interests of IDPs.

Our vision to solve this problem: We want to restore all aspects of IDP status — social, political, economic to the level that was before the outbreak of the military conflict in eastern Ukraine; strengthening the institutional capacities of civil society institutions.

The goal of the advocacy company: Obtaining compensation for persons affected by the annexed Crimea and the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine and adjusting legislation of IDP`s status
