Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk emphasized this in a gathering about forming a reserve of state and law enforcement officials to work in the state-protected areas.

Each department that is going to work for the DOT should create its plan to de-occupy and its implementation plan, the official said. Once these areas are no longer occupied, we must swiftly establish a system to rebuild the state’s authority and reintegrate the people in a timely way.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs has approved a plan of key measures to resume operations at the DOT. The National Police will provide staff in these areas through internal redistribution.

Meanwhile, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine is working on an action plan to help restore law enforcement in the DOT.

The High Qualification Commission for Judges, with the State Judicial Administration and the High Judicial Council, are planning to create a separate reserve of judges and court staff to work in the de-occupied territories.

The participants of the meeting also stressed the need to improve the judicial map of Ukraine and introduce additional digital products to speed up and improve personnel procedures. Specifically, a system for digital case files is presently under development. This new approach would enable candidates seeking judicial roles to present their documents in digital form.
