Housing, land and property issues are key protection concerns for conflict-affected people in Ukraine.1 For people living close to the contact line separating governmentcontrolled areas (GCA) and non-government controlled areas (NGCA) of Ukraine, expropriation and occupation of residential houses, commercial property and private agricultural land by military actors has been reported.
Military occupation of housing, including looting and damage, has been reported both in GCA and NGCA.
