The participants included representatives of organs and structures, which provide or seek to provide assistance to internally displaced persons from the Crimea and Donbas, such as: officers from ministries and services, international and Ukrainian non-governmental organizations, and academic scientists. The roundtable discussed the key issues of temporary migrants that require resolution and state response; existing experience of providing appropriate assistance; and the necessary legal changes. The participants came to a consensus on a common list of basic problems of immigrants. Repeatedly emphasized the need to introduce registration of immigrants, radical de-bureaucratization of the process, and providing immediate legal assistance and improved coordination between government and non-governmental organizations.
