The aforementioned was stated by the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine during a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Human Rights, De-occupation and Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories in Donetsk, Luhansk Oblasts and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, National Minorities and Interethnic Relations.
"In December 2020, the Government approved the Concept of the future Strategy of economic development of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, that is the political proposal for the development of Government-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts was approved. From that moment and within 6 months we have the task to draft the Strategy, to approve it at the Government and work with the Parliament in terms of packages of legislative acts," noted Oleksii Reznikov in his speech.
Reznikov also recalled the draft bill of Ukraine "On state policy of transition period", on which the team of Ministry for Reintegration of TOT is working. "Currently we are working on numerous recommendations, and soon the final draft, with the account of all suggestions will be published again. Moreover, we expect that the Venice Commission will assess this document," added the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine.
Within the framework of communication with people's deputies Reznikov also reported on another important strategic document, which is being developed by the Ministry for Reintegration of TOT - the Concept for the development of the Crimean Tatar Language.
"As of today, the Government Committee supported the draft Concept, which will be the basis for the development of the Strategy for 2022 -2032. This is vital, because we will soon have a meeting at the UN regional level, there will be a question of the development of languages of indigenous peoples among other topics. I hope that next Wednesday, this concept will be supported by my colleagues and approved by the Government," added Oleksii Reznikov.
In addition, the issues were raised on the support for television and radio companies which broadcast in the temporarily occupied territories, the assistance to the IDPs, the issues of housing provision, payments and compensations, the support of youth from the TOT and the like.
"A number of important issues have been raised today and I am grateful to the parliamentarians - members of our profile Committee, for their personal involvement and for the fact that this meeting took place on their initiative. In turn, I would like to offer to hold such meetings on a regular basis at least once a quarter. Many of our initiatives will require tremendous support from the people's deputies and we count on this support," concluded Oleksii Reznikov.
