Iryna Vereshchuk: We want as many IDPs as possible to find work
Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk reminded on the air of the national telethon that employment of internally displaced persons is one of the key topics for the Government.
Currently, the number of internally displaced persons registered since February 24 is 3.4 million Ukrainians. In general, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), over 6.2 million IDPs appeared in Ukraine during the 8 years of russian military aggression. This is about 14% of the total population of Ukraine. Most of them are able-bodied people.
„We support IDPs in every possible way in finding a job. This is one of the key tasks of the government. For example, the еRobota program is in effect – thousands of people have already been employed with its help,“ Iryna Vereshchuk said.
According to her, there are currently also international structures with programs to create jobs for Ukrainians who had to flee their homes and were left without a job.
