UN to assist with maintaining ATO zone entry regime
Representatives of the United Nations Development Program in Ukraine will assist in maintaining the entry permit system in the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) zone and will address the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to fulfill the objective.
"Another priority in our program is cooperation with the media. We plan to provide them with information, verified facts, to let the people have objective information," said Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Berend De Groot during a meeting with representatives of the Donetsk Regional State Administration.
Country director at UNDP (Ukraine) Jan Thomas Hiemstra and Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Berend De Groot stated that their program was designed to help immigrants and provide them with psychological support. A lot of effort is made in assisting with clearing the mined areas.
"The meeting addressed the issues related to entry permit regime. UNDP representatives assured that they would assist in tackling this issue efficiently and would address the International Organization for Migration to that end," the press service of the Donetsk Regional State Administration reported.
Participants of the international delegations stressed that much attention is also paid to decentralization of power and the reform of law enforcement agencies in Ukraine, noting that Donetsk region could become a good example to be followed by other Ukrainian regions.
Deputy Chairman of Donetsk Regional State Administration Viktor Androsov expressed his support for the position of the UNDP representatives.
