Such a situation, clearly threatening the life of a citizen, can be a variety of circumstances, in particular:
• being at the front in the combat area;
• participation in a counter-terrorist operation;
• injury (regardless of whether the wounded citizen is in the hospital or not);
• serious illness (both at home and in a hospital);
• being in the territory covered by a natural disaster;
• being on a ship in distress.
A citizen in these or other similar difficult circumstances can state his last will in relation to his property in simple writing – that is, simply by writing it down on paper.
However, a document drawn up by a citizen in simple writing and containing a statement by him of his last will is recognized as his will only if it meets the following conditions:
1. it follows from the content of the document that it is a will;
2. the document was personally written and signed by the citizen;
3. the document is drawn up and signed by the citizen in the presence of two witnesses.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
