Tomorrow, December 10, «Restoring Donbas and Ukraine» Forum will take place in Kiev. There will be worked out practical steps in order to resolve a number of humanitarian issues of internally displaced persons and people, who are returning to the region. There will be discussed the problem of economic reintegration of the region, attracting investments to Ukrainian economy. It was stated by Oleksandr Klymenko – politician, the founder of community initiative “Restoring Donbas”, organizer of the event – on his Facebook page.
According to him, more than 150 people – representatives of public organizations, the leading audit firms, political scientists, sociologists and economists – have already registered for participation in the Forum.
“I am grateful to each of them! We will be able to create truly effective public platform in order to look for the ways of restoring Donbas and Ukraine only together, only by joining forces. This is the only way we can find the answers to the difficult challenges, which take place today”, – Klymenko says.
According to the politician, “the problem of Donbas and Ukraine is no longer a priority issue on the agenda for the international community. Current Ukrainian government ignores the problems and lies idle. “So who, if not we – Ukrainian citizens – will be able to join forces and develop a common agenda?” – he asks.
Let us recall that the State Agency for the Reconstruction of Donbas was established in September 2014. However, its real work has not yet started. Moreover, the government agency has recently received the status of legal entity and began recruitment. In addition, the state program on assisting IDPs has not been designed.
Klymenko invited to take part in the Forum of journalists and bloggers, who have already formed a number of myths about this event in their publications. “Plethora people in Ukraine recently have acquired addiction: they criticize everyone and everything, without understanding of the question, they do nothing and do not offer alternatives. Dear journalists, activists and bloggers, I invite you to the Forum tomorrow, take part, provide your proposals, and then make up your opinion “, – politician says.
According to him, “carrying out of this Forum – it is not political maneuvers and certainly it is not “compensation”, as it was stated by one journalist. It is moral duty of everyone, who considers himself to be Ukrainian citizen. “According to him, it is not necessary to discuss restoration of a relevant part of Donbas is inappropriate.
“Donbass – is Ukraine. Totally and utterly “- Klymenko said. He also emphasized that he “expects for” the support of all, who care about the future of the region, the future of the whole Ukraine, who wants to make our country united, peaceful and successful. ”
