• Abstract

    The armed invasion of Ukraine by Russia has caused significant damage to infrastructure, the economy, and the socio-political sphere, including tourism. Tourism recovery is currently a relevant and practically important problem, particularly in the prospective aspect of the post-war recovery of Ukraine. This study examines the post-war recovery of the tourism sector in communities and regions of Ukraine, using the Kyiv region as an example. It identifies the extent of damages and their negative impact on the sustainable development of the territory. Additionally, the study determines the needs of participants in tourist destinations. The research analysed the impact of various factors on the stability of tourism development. The aim was to develop recommendations and advice for restoring balance and developing tourist destinations. The study identifies systematic trends in the recovery of sustainable tourism development and unifies strategic tasks for tourism development at the community level. The need to optimise the motivational policy of local government bodies is justified by the developed methodology for assessing the vulnerability of tourist destinations due to military aggression. The research results showed that the Kyiv region suffered damage unevenly, requiring a targeted approach and proposals based on the current state and needs. Models for post-war tourism recovery have been developed, considering the extent and nature of damages and the dynamics of tourism activity indicators. These models can be effectively applied in community-based practical activities.
