State failure 

The situation with IDPs is
peculiar for what we call state failure, with the role of civil society
organizations and other initiatives being bigger than those of government
institutions. Non-profit groups have had to step in as government institutions lack
the capacity to deal with the extraordinary situation.

After the EuroMaidan Revolution,
many effective networks of civil society activists have emerged. The experience
gained during the winter clashes is now being applied in a new context.
Initiatives like Krym_SOS, Vostok_SOS, Ноuse of Friends, Free People Employment
Center, as well as the IDP Help Coordination Center and others have helped
transport IDPs, find them temporary settlement, jobs and legal assistance.
