The financial situation of IDPs has worsened, and problems with finding a job still remain urgent, according to the report of the National Monitoring System of the Situation with Internally Displaced Persons in Ukraine for March 2018, which was prepared by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The report notes the reluctance of a significant number of IDPs, even in the long term, to return to their small homeland. At the same time, the incomes of many of them are very low, reportedly, more than half of the IDPs live on support from the state.

It is further noted that many people are forced to return to the occupied territories due to their difficult financial situation. However, they do not feel safe staying in ORDLO.

Earlier, the registration of utility subsidies was simplified for IDPs. Thus, since May 1 of this year, IDPs have the right to register communal subsidies without presenting an agreement on renting housing, according to the website of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
