Since August, 2015, in the city of Khmelnytskyi with the financial support of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) the "Legal Support for IPDs and Victims of the Conflict in Ukraine" project is being implemented. In Khmelnytskyi region IDPs can ask for legal aid at the reception office of the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union located in the building of Khmelnytskyi NGO "Podilska Legal League".
The director of the Coordinating Center for Legal Aid Providing Andriy Vyshnevsky has been deprived of the right to implement lawyer activity. The Statement of the Ukrainian National Bar Association (UNBA) of September 10, 2015 caused a great resonance among human rights activists. The fact of persecution of the lawyer Vyshnevsky developed into a much wider topic – the fight for independence of the Bar of the Ukraine and the need of its reforming.
