According to Rosbalt, the document was signed by Minister for Refugees of the Georgian government Koba Subeliani and head of the European Union office in Georgia Philip Dimitrov.
As was told by Subeliani, the country's authorities practically finished the process of rehabilitation of collective residence centers for refugees and the process of legalizing their dwelling. "For those refugees who have got no dwelling of their own, who rent it or live at their relatives' houses will be built on European Union's means with the participation of the Georgian budget", - he underlined. According to the minister, houses for refugees are being constructed in Samegrelo, Kutaisi, Tskhaltubo, Poti and Batumi.
In his turn, Philip Dimitrov underlined that the signing of this memorandum confirms EU's desire to help Georgia. "We have already allocated 105 million euros for settling refugees' problems and this particular memorandum is aimed at providing improved living conditions for them", - he added.
Let us remind you that yesterday, February 7, another protest action was held by refugees from Abkhazia and South Ossetia in front of the Georgian parliament.
The forcibly displaced persons living in Tbilisi permanently hold protest actions demanding to stop the process of their eviction from temporary locations and to allocate them dwellings in the Georgian capital instead of those in the regions offered by government.
As was reported earlier, several hundreds of forcibly displaced persons are going to appeal to the U.S. and Georgian Embassies for political asylum. Up to 150 refugees have already appealed to the German Embassy; the same amount of people appealed to the French Embassy. About 300 refugees are going to turn to the U.S. Embassy in the nearest time", - leader of Refugees Civil Movement David Malazonia stated.
