Sociological research has revealed that 70% of immigrants from the Donbass have to return to ORDO due to lack of funds for rental housing and the inability to find a job.

It is reported by the international organization for migration, UN.

“More than half of the internally displaced persons who return, pensioners aged over 60 years,” reports the IOM.
