It is planned to begin the process of resettlement of places of compact settlement of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Ukraine, in 2022 as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Deputy Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Inna Drahanchuk.

"We plan (to refuse from places of compact settlement - ed.) that this is a strategic task. There are 150 such places in Ukraine, where 6,120 people live. Now places of compact residence are either objects, which were spontaneously provided to us in 2014 by Germans, or sanatoriums that are absolutely not adapted for winter. In order to provide these people with housing, it is necessary to allocate at least two billion hryvnias ($76,345,960.00)," Drahanchuk said.

She noted that by the end of 2022, several pilot projects will be selected, with which the development of a plan for resettlement of places of a compact settlement will begin.

"Most likely, it will be Kryvyi Rih, Odesa and, possibly, the third - Kyiv. Further, using the example of resettlement of these three places, we will be able to understand how to act in all the rest…I hope that from the second quarter of 2022 we will start resettlement in pilot projects," the deputy minister added.

At the same time, Drahanchuk noted that simple resettlement will not solve all the problems of migrants who are in places of compact settlement.

“Those citizens who are in places of compact residence today have much more problems than just living ones. There is employment and education here, because elderly people, children who do not attend school often live there,” she stressed.
