We regard reintegration models as different alternative sets of conditional choices of particular tools and measures aimed at conflict resolution and reconciliation based on short-term and long-term goals regarding specific target groups and beneficiaries, victims and / or those affected by the war and occupation (e. g., internally displaced persons and residents of temporarily occupied territories or frontline areas), and Ukrainian society and the state in general. At the same time, the choice of such individual tools and measures should take into account both international and internal previous experience of their implementation as well as a comprehensive analysis and modeling of various potential options for conflict resolution and reintegration. One should not forget that when talking about the policy of reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories, we must understand that the subject of such a policy is twofold: on the one hand, the policy of reintegration should be a policy of a "fight for the people" and on the other hand – of a "fight for the territory". Besides, policies in the context of both these types of struggles must not contradict but complement and reinforce each other. It is also important to use soft power both in contexts of the "fight for the people" and the "fight for the territory" (Українська призма, 2020, p. 7).
