ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Security Service of Ukraine, within the framework of the special program “Waiting for You at Home” (It was implemented in August 2015), helps to return the citizens who voluntarily refused to participate in “DNR/LNR” illegal armed groups to the government-controlled territories of Ukraine and releases them from the criminal responsibility.

Recently, the SBU has documented that the “DNR/LNR”, special services, actively counteract the Program implementation. They carry out special technical measures for identification of the location and ID of a person who calls the SBU hotline.
If you are in non government-controlled territories of Ukraine, or in Russia, in the interests of your safety, we strongly recommend you not to call the phone numbers provided in previously published advertisements, postcards and other sources. For secure communication write to the Program Representative by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the SBU directly through a person you trust in government-controlled territories of Ukraine.
Still, the previously mentioned phone numbers remain active and can be used if a person reaches the government-controlled territories of Ukraine. When phoning these numbers, do not mention information that allows to identify a person who stays in non government-controlled territories of Ukraine, such as: surname, call sign, position in a given illegal armed group, residence address or registration address, etc.
