Payments are set to Ukrainian citizens illegally deprived of their liberty by the Russian Federation and released from Russian captivity

On March 30th, the Interdepartmental Commission for consideration of issues related to the recognition of persons deprived of liberty as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine and the implementation of measures aimed at their social protection at its session adopted a decision to allocate monetary assistance to another 38 Ukrainian citizens.

In particular, 15 families of Ukrainian citizens illegally detained by the occupation administration and/or authorities of the Russian Federation, who are currently behind bars will be provided with monetary assistance worth UAH 100 000.

In addition, another 23 Ukrainian citizens released earlier from Russian captivity will be provided with monetary assistance worth UAH 100 000.

Accordingly, another UAH 3.8 million will be allocated for the corresponding payments.

Let us recall that in September 2020 the Ministry for Reintegration of TOT resumed the work of the Interdepartmental Commission for consideration of issues related to the recognition of persons deprived of liberty as a result of armed aggression against Ukraine and the implementation of measures aimed at their social protection.

Therefore, in 2020, 116 families received monetary assistance from the state. The total amount of payments constitutes UAH 11.6 million.

The decision on the allocation of funds is actually an additional tool for the Russian Federation as the aggressor state to be publicly accountable for the violation of the rights of Ukrainian citizens and their subsequent restoration at the level of the institutions of the European Court of Human Rights.
