The protection of state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine is one of the constitutional duties of citizens. Under the legal regime of martial law, administrative and legal means of conducting a balanced State policy on mobilization, and creating an appropriate human resources potential for the protection of the State sovereignty and territorial value of Ukraine are of particular importance.

The authors of the article state that verification of a citizen's identity documents is one of the means of clarifying and establishing the identity of a citizen by authorized officials of state authorities, local self-government and military administration, in particular, by the Territorial Centers for Recruitment and Social Support.

Regulatory legal acts of Ukraine regulate the relations arising in the course of verification of citizens' identity and provide for supervision/control over compliance with the law by officials authorized to carry out the verification.

The authors of the study aimed to identify the causes and conditions that lead to conflicts during the verification of documents under the legal regime of martial law by military officials of the Territorial Recruitment and Social Support Centers.

The authors emphasize that the legal means of resolving conflicts arising during the verification should be enshrined in the substantive and procedural rules of administrative law. The author emphasizes that a compromise is a possibility of reaching a full agreement during the verification of an individual's documents. The author proposes a list of cases where a compromise may be reached between the parties to the document verification. It is noted that the use of physical force, special means or weapons is an extreme measure which is allowed in exceptional cases and in accordance with the procedure clearly defined by law.
