What the parliament must do now to protect war-affected Ukrainians: the road map presentation

Why this is interesting:
On the first day of the tenth session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, experts from a coalition of organizations protecting the rights of the victims of war will present an analysis of the relevant draft laws currently under consideration in the parliament. In particular, the presentation will focus on draft laws on “deported” or “forcefully displaced” Ukrainian children and the procedure for their return to Ukraine, on paying pension to citizens, who live in the temporarily occupied territory or have left it, on legislative regulation of responsibility for collaborative activities, and others.
