The Ministry of the Interior presented a mobile application for the rescue of domestic and gender violence

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine presented a mobile application to respond to cases of domestic and gender-based violence.

This is reported on the website of the Ministry of Interior.

It should be noted that this application allows the injured person to call and receive help without a phone call, without attracting the attention of the offender.

“This is an additional and practical method to respond to cases of domestic and gender-based violence. In addition, the mobile application is a resource with useful information on the types of violence, a map with all the services available nearby and, of course, a button to call the police,” the announcement said.

Note that the application can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store. The ministry also noted that the program is integrated into the information and communication system “NPU Information Portal”.

“The developers note that the look and functionality will be changed due to security concerns. The name of the app is not shared publicly so that the perpetrator cannot identify it on the victim’s phone” , says the report.

Since the start of the large-scale invasion of Russia, police have recorded more than 58,000 reports of domestic violence. That’s more than double last year, according to the Home Office.

“18,226 offenders have been brought to justice,” the ministry said.

It is also noted that, according to the results of a survey conducted by the United Nations Population Fund among target groups, 56% of respondents believe that the number of cases of such violence has recently increased.

In his speech, Interior Minister Denis Monastirskyi noted that today’s war threatens to increase the number of cases of violence in the future. Therefore, the Ministry of the Interior must now provide all the necessary tools and support to protect the most vulnerable categories of citizens.

Thus, the ministry concluded, the application is “camouflaged” under the usual (it does not look like a solid application for calling the police, does not arouse suspicion in the attacker).

“The main functions of the application only become visible to those who need the assistance of the police. Thus, the concept makes it imperceptible to the perpetrator, allowing the victim to install and use it on their phone without fear”, – sepafa u povídomlenni.
