Deputy Minister of Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons Heorhii Tuka said on air of 5 Channel, Censor.NET reports.
"As far as I know, the register should be launched in test mode on Aug. 1. With its help, we'll get certain objective data on the number of people registered and residing in the territory of Ukraine," he said.
At that, Tuka noted that the keeping of the register falls within the competence of the Ministry of Social Policy.
"I heard the minister [of the social policy - ed.] say that this register is to be transferred to our ministry. However, our lawyers arrived at preliminary conclusions that such a transfer requires changes to the current legislation," the official pointed out.
