KIEV, February 26. /TASS/. The European Union will allocate 1.5 million euro to Ukraine’s Dnepropetrovsk region to help forced migrants from the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, the press service of the regional state administration said on Thursday.
According to the press service, an agreement on the implementation of Ukraine’s first project for the support of internally displaced persons was signed by Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Berend de Groot and head of the Pomoshch Dnepra charity organization Vladislav Makarov.
"The funds will be used to repair, restore and furnish 15 facilities in seven cities in the Dnepropetrovsk region. More than 2,000 people from the most vulnerable categories of forced migrants - women, children and the elder people - will be accommodated at these facilities within two months," the press service said.
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs /OCHA/, as of late January there were 610,000 internally displaced persons in Ukraine. More than 800,000 refugees registered in Russia as of January 20, 2015, the Russian Federal Migration Service said.
