The temporary protection of Ukrainians has been officially extended until 2024
The European Commission decided to extend the Temporary Protection Directive for Ukrainians. It will be valid until March 2024. Also, Ukrainians will not use up their temporary protection status, even if they return home for a long time.
European Commissioner for Internal Affairs Ilva Johansson reported that such a decision was made against the background of mass missile attack on Ukraine by Russian troops on October 10.
In addition, Johansson said that those Ukrainians who decided to return home will not lose their temporary protection status, this is due to the unstable situation in Ukraine.
"Many refugees are afraid to leave the Temporary Protection Directive register because they may have to flee again, and we understand that. Therefore, we have decided that you do not need to leave the registry - you can keep the temporary protection documents that you received. All you have to do is notify the national or local authorities where you are that you are returning to Ukraine. But you don't need to give the document, and you can keep the registration", - the European Commissioner explained.
As you know, the status of temporary protection is granted to Ukrainians who were forced to leave for EU countries because of the war. This status provides Ukrainians with assistance and a number of rights to work, housing, education, medical care, etc.
We will remind you! We talked in more detail about the difference between the status of temporary protection and the status of a refugee earlier in our material at the link.
The European Commission also announced the launch of the "Talent Pool" project, which should provide Ukrainians in the EU with better access to the labor market.
"A recent survey showed that more than 370,000 people were registered as jobseekers in 15 Member States, in August 250,000 people were officially registered as jobseekers in 18 Member States. Learn a language and find a job - this is the best way to integrate into Europe. We hope that the pilot project "Talent Pool" that we are launching today will speed up the process of getting a job in the EU", - emphasized the European Commissioner for Employment and Social Rights, Nicolas Schmidt.
