The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved the procedure for implementing a pilot project that provides for the creation of a reserve of government employees to work in the de-occupied territories.
The Mission was actively involved in the development of this draft act, developed by the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine and the National Agency of Ukraine on Civil Service.
The draft stipulates that both current civil servants and other persons may volunteer to work in the de-occupied territories, including the Crimean peninsula.
Civil servants will be sent to the de-occupied territories on official business trips, while other persons will be appointed to civil service positions under the simplified procedure provided for by the Law of Ukraine “On the Legal Regime of Martial Law.”
Applications will be submitted and administered in an electronic system administered by the National Agency. Priority for appointment will be given to war veterans, internally displaced persons, as well as those who previously held these positions or have experience in reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories. Those who will be enrolled in the recovery reserve will receive professional training.
The Mission is grateful to the Government for this important step for the training and future recovery of Crimea!
