IDPs in Ukraine

Even if the family of Serhiy enjoys a rent allowance, it doesn't get any serena that. Their main concern is the future. Everyone wants to go home, but it's still very dangerous. Security and peace must be the priority of the new Parliament and Government, recognizes Serhriy as well as economic recovery, because the war has destroyed the region. And concludes: "what we need is to focus on the economy and put an end to this war. And make all the laws are properly applied. "
