ITF signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with Ukraine

13.02.2015

On February 13, 2015 Ambassador Damjan Bergant, ITF Director and Mr Boiko Anatoliy, First Deputy Head of State Emergency Service of Ukraine signed Memorandum of Cooperation in Kiev, Ukraine. The Memorandum will serve as a tool and a precondition for the ITF to initiate planning as well as implementation of projects to support post-conflict rehabilitation of Ukraine.

ITF has initiated fundraising activities for implementation of projects aiming to diminish the devastating consequences of armed conflict in Ukraine. The post-conflict rehabilitation shall reduce immediate and long-term humanitarian threat posed by explosive remnants of war (ERW) as well as their socio-economic impact. As a first rapid response ITF plans to conduct a technical assessment of landmine/ERW problem in Ukraine which will be followed by concrete response activities as agreed with Ukrainian government.

ITF will focus on planned activities in line with signed Memorandum on Cooperation, while its implementation will depend also on political/security situation in Ukraine, which still remains uncertain. ITF also plans to continue in 2015 a psychosocial rehabilitation program in Slovenia for children - victims of armed conflict in Ukraine supported by Republic of Slovenia which was initiated already in 2013.
