Inheritance problems in the zone of anti-terrorist operations and in the occupied territories.

The goal is to form an understanding of the exercise of the right to inheritance, development of new recommendations aimed at resolving the identified problems, and further improvement of the legislative regulation of relations that arise during the exercise of inheritance rights. There are about 70 territories in the world with similar status and protection problem ownership and other property rights in these territories periodically arise from varying degrees of severity and become the subject of consideration by various instances, first of all of the European Court of Human Rights. It should be noted that the provided remains unrealized opportunities for the heir due to insufficient awareness of citizens about their rights and the procedure for protecting inheritance rights. It is recommended that changes should be made to the legislation on the protection of property rights and acceptance of inheritance from the testator, whose last place of residence or immovable property is in the occupied territories.
