After all, documents issued by the authorities of illegal armed formations have no legal force. Problems also arise for the heirs. There are no state registries and state bodies of Ukraine working there. At the same time, as with many other constitutional rights, nobody cancels ownership. In a similar situation, a resident of the Kovel oblast appeared, whose father died in the occupied territory. The certificate of his death, issued on the letterhead of the so-called Ministry of Health of the “DPR”, is not recognized on the territory of Ukraine.
