Ministry of Internal Affairs is going to open a centre for illegal migrants in the palace of XIX century

A centre for illegal migrants is planned to be equipped by MIA in the palace of Badeni – monument of architecture of 19th century in Lviv region. The deputies of Regional Council appealed to prime minister with demand to cancel this decision. According to the decision of Cabinet of Ministers, palace of the earl Badeni was transferred to Ministry of Internal Affairs. It, in its turn, has decided to reconstruct this building into the centre for illegal migrants who illegally stay at the territory of Ukraine. The chairman of State administration of Buiskiy district Mykhailo Vovk affirms that local community is strongly against and is ready to start the actions of protest. There are about half a hundred monuments of architecture and no museum there, the very this palace could be used for expositions. The archaeologists have found artefacts of 13-16th century on the territory of the palace.

The member of Ukrainian Association of Amnesty International Nataliya Dulneva marked that centre for illegal migrants must correspond definite international standards; reconstruction of the palace is very expensive and difficult. The light and big rooms have to be in TAC, acceptable sanitary-hygienic conditions, territory for walks, as not criminals will be kept there but people with children and even sometimes the families.
