Help to refugees: PACE recommends giving money

The Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe approved the decision to that Ukrainian refugees, after the end of the war and return to their homeland, will receive financial assistance from European countries.

As Verkhovna Rada deputy Alexey Goncharenko, who heads the (PACE) Committee on Migration and Refugees, said, the countries of the European Union may not agree with such a proposal.

The People's Deputy also said that the committee is working to ensure that European countries undertake obligations to provide assistance to Ukrainian internally displaced persons. So far, there has been no final decision on payments to refugees who decide to return to Ukraine.

As political expert Vitaly Kulik said, the PACE decision to provide funding – only advisory.

"Let's start with the fact that PACE – it is not even the European Parliament, and its decisions are only advisory in nature. That is, this does not mean that such a decision will be implemented,” he explained.

According to the expert, such decisions should be made at the level of the European Commission, the European Parliament and individual EU countries. At the same time, the key question will be the sources of financing for such a measure.

Investment banker and financial analyst Sergei Fursa also shares a similar opinion.

"Until any European countries have accepted this, this “about nothing,” he emphasized.
