Poroshenko simplifies registration procedure for IDPs
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko enacted the law on amending Article 3 of the law "On Freedom of Movement and Free Choice of the Place of Residence in Ukraine," with regard to internally displaced persons (IDPs), the presidential press service told an UNIAN correspondent.
According to the law, the registration certificate of an internally displaced person is excluded from the list of documents requiring filling in the data on the place of residents.
Thus, the norms of the law are now consistent with the provisions of the law "On Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons," which is the basic legislative act in the regulation of the IDPs’ legal status in Ukraine, the report said.
