What problems do refugees face abroad and after returning to Ukraine?

How can the experience of returning refugees be integrated into decision-making processes in Ukraine?

What are the priorities and current programs of governmental and non-governmental organizations and stakeholders regarding refugee protection, return and (re)integration?

How do international/Ukrainian organizations and the government of Ukraine balance between the need to protect refugees abroad and the intentions of their return and reintegration?
