Bogdan Kriklivenko, Head of the Office of the Ukrainian Parliament’s Ombudsman, shared details of the meeting on his Facebook page.
“An exit meeting of the Ukrainian Parliament’s Committee on Human Rights took place in Kramatorsk. The meeting’s participants spent 3 hours talking about the most pressing issues, such as suspension of pension payments and social benefits, housing for internally displaced persons, crossing the border and carrying goods for personal use,” wrote Kriklivenko.
He mentioned how important it was for the refugees to hear about specific steps aimed at protecting their rights being taken.
“I reported on the proposals set forth in an annual report the Ukrainian Parliament’s Ombudsman submitted to the parliament last week,” wrote Kriklivenko.
It was reported earlier that at a recent meeting of the Ukrainian Parliament’s Committee on Human Rights Mustafa Jemilev, Leader of the Crimean Tatar people, expressed hope that a draft law on internally displaced persons which will soon be put to the vote at the Ukrainian Parliament, will be very important and significant not only for Ukraine but for the entire world. In his turn, Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov said that the adoption of the law will be a fairly significant event.
