This was discussed at an interagency meeting, where participants explored the State’s policy on comprehensive rehabilitation for individuals released from enemy captivity.


Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk, Health Minister Viktor Liashko, and other officials attended the event.

The concept aims to offer top-notch medical, rehabilitation, and psychological support to individuals freed from captivity. This applies to both freed civilian hostages and released military personnel.


The participants in the meeting reached a consensus that the applicable state policy needs to be executed in three specific areas:


– medical (including psychological care);

– social protection;

– reintegration (the restoration and return of former prisoners to a full life).


Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk emphasized that the state must ensure the protection of the rights and dignity of former prisoners. She also emphasized that the issue of psychological rehabilitation of these people requires a separate regulation.
