This is what Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk stated during a broadcast on the Czech TV channel ČT24. This is reported by ReInform reports with the reference to the Ministry of Reintegration.
According to her, since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, the Ukrainian authorities have been engaged in saving the state and have been more concerned with internal displaced persons. Now there is a need to think about those who were forced to seek refuge abroad.
“There are currently 5 million Ukrainians there. They are dealing with absolutely everyday life issues: housing, access to healthcare and insurance, nostrification of documents, the ability to receive a Ukrainian pension, unblocking bank accounts, education, etc. All of this requires certain decisions at the interstate level,” the official said.
She expressed hope that our compatriots will turn to the Ministry of Reintegration for help.
“I am counting on it. We, together with embassies, diplomatic and other institutions, will help. I suggest we do it together. So that Ukrainians abroad do not lose touch with their homeland and have a desire to return to their home, our native Ukraine, at the earliest opportunity,” the Vice Prime Minister summarized.
