Essence of the question

Ukrainian legislation does not provide for extra-judicial mechanism for registration of inheritance rights, if a hereditary case was opened before the start of the occupation, but the certificate had not been issued according to the legislation of Ukraine.

This situation on its own cannot be qualified as a violation of property rights. However, here we observe the signs of discrimination when in order to protect one’s rights the heir has to resort to more complex (judicial) procedure, whereas all who did not submit an application for acceptance of inheritance before the beginning of the occupation, can apply for the inheritance right through the offices of a notary.
