Due to the war that Russia started, many Ukrainians were forced to leave for safer regions and become internally displaced persons. The state provides them with financial assistance, but in September a Cabinet of Ministers resolution came into force, changing the procedure for assigning and extending accommodation payments for IDPs. Some of the displaced people lost the right to payments, writes “1+1”.
