The issue of social reintegration of veterans of the russian-Ukrainian war, unfortunately, is currently one of the most problematic issues for Ukrainian society. And these questions will remain acute and significant for society for decades to come. The modern war poses challenges to our state, with the solution of which even the most developed democratic countries have significant difficulties. More than a million soldiers and about 5 million of their relatives and family members (according to experts) have to find a place for themselves in the social and legal system of the new Ukraine.
