How to find loved ones: the Unified Register of Missing Persons During the War has been launched

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, tens of thousands of people have been reported missing. The vast majority of them have been found. However, about 23,000 people are still officially confirmed as missing as a result of the hostilities. The Unified Register of Missing Persons has been created to search for loved ones

The Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine has launched a Unified Register of Missing Persons, which has already begun its work. This registry will contain all known information about people who disappeared during the war.


Unified register of missing persons: what is known


The new registry will collect all known data on missing persons that can help in the search. It is also noted that the registry will include information on the presence or absence of a court decision to declare a person missing or to declare him or her dead. 


Within a month after the court decision, the relatives of the missing person will be able to obtain an extract from the register from the Department of Informatization of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, which will confirm the status of the missing person.


To receive the document, you need to submit a request and copies of documents proving the identity of the requestor and the degree of kinship with the missing person. 


They should be sent by mail to 10 Bohomoltsia St., Kyiv, Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, or by e-mail to [email protected]


Please note! Data verification is carried out within 30 calendar days. 


The extract is sent to the e-mail address specified in the application or to the return postal address. After receiving it, the relatives of the missing person will be able to provide the document to the Pension Fund and apply for a survivor's pension for disabled family members.


Important! The inclusion of a person in the register is the only confirmation that a person is considered missing under special circumstances. However, the presence of a person's data in the register does not confirm their death or captivity. According to the ministry, the register is a fully secure database. Only certain officials will have access to it.


Please note that other services for searching for missing persons during the war can be found here.


In particular, Ukraine has established a national bureau for searching for those who disappeared during the war. Details can be found here.


We remind you! Recently, the russian dictator issued a "decree" according to which citizens with Ukrainian passports are considered foreigners. That is, the occupiers continue to attempt to force passports. Read about the consequences of this under Ukrainian law in our article.
