In July 2017, an IDP attended the joint reception by specialists from the Chuhuiv local center for free secondary legal aid and the Chuhuiv Human Rights Protection Group.

The Ombudsman upholds the right of IDPs to receive payments not only in the Oshchadbank

The Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Valeria Lutkovska believes that the assignment of a state-run bank that carries out the payment of pensions or other monetary assistance to internally displaced persons is the restriction of a person's right to freedom of choice of a banking institution. Also the Ombudsman believes that this is a direct discrimination based on residency and the IDP status, reported on the website of the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights.

The family that moved within their native city managed to receive IDP status

In addition to IDPs, who fleeing from the consequences of conflict were forced to leave their native towns and villages, there are people, who moved within their home locality, in Ukraine.

Human rights activists call this category of people affected by the conflict “displaced”, according to Right to Protection.
