Ukraine’s government is developing transitional legislation for the liberated territories, Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegrating Temporarily Occupied Territories Iryna Vereshchuk said on Ukrainian national television on March 27.

“We’re currently discussing the concept of transitional legislation,” she said.

“We’re talking about a bill on the legal regime of the liberated territories, which will describe all possible directions.”

It is not just about restoring local self-governing state authorities, but also about establishing justice.

The government will also consider the issue of property rights, she said.

“We have millions of decisions from Russia’s quasi-courts regarding property,” the official said.

“For example, on the territory of Crimea, Donetsk, and Luhansk oblasts. This also applies to humanitarian and information recovery.”

Defense Intelligence representative Andriy Yusov previously stated that the Russian occupation “authorities” had started evacuating temporarily occupied Crimea.

Russian military commanders on the peninsula and the occupation administration are actively selling real estate and moving their families out of Crimea, he said.
