Returning Home: Understanding the Perspectives of Veterans in Ukraine after the 24th of February 2022

May 15, 2024

The present report aims to explore key areas that shape the post-war lives of Ukrainian veterans. It investigates veterans’ perceptions about the current situation in Ukraine, their essential needs and priorities, as well as pinpointing any aspects which could form challenges to their reintegration into civilian life. The study uses quantitative data to understand these topics and, based on these findings, draws evidence-based recommendations for policies and programmes to aid veterans’ reintegration. 

The report is based on reSCORE data, which is a joint initiative funded by USAID and UNDP and implemented by SeeD, serving as an annual assessment tool for societal resilience and recovery and informing the policies and programming of national, regional, and international partners.

The report was jointly developed by the Centre for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development (SeeD), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine with financial support from the European Union, provided within the “EU4Recovery – Empowering Communities in Ukraine” (EU4Recovery) project.
