137 referrals for temporary accommodation issued this year


The Human Rights Ombudsman Office in the Donetsk People’s Republic under the leadership of Daria Morozova provides assistance to citizens, who suffered as a result of the military conflict. The lack of accommodation is one of the acutest problems of people, who had to leave their home due to hostilities.

Between 19 and 25 May 2018, 14 persons have applied to the Ombudsman’s Office on the issues related to internally displaced persons. Two of them received referrals for temporary accommodation for affected citizens in Donetsk.

Since the beginning of the armed aggression by Ukraine, 5380 referrals (137 referrals – in 2018) for temporary accommodation have been issued for people who need temporary housing.

1221 persons, who suffered as a result of hostilities in Donbass now live in temporary accommodation centres of the Office, including 228 underage children.
