The article examines separate sexual problems of psychosomatic disorders of persons who have become victims of sexual criminal offenses; issues related to behavioral analysis, the state of health, physical and moral balance, the internal complex of unrealized anger, social dissatisfaction, models of unresolved conflict in Ukrainian society. Proposals for reforming outdated legal norms and social practices, expanding the range of understanding of social space, victims of sexual criminal offenses of a sexual nature and refugees, of which there are many, are significant for the constitutional values of our citizens. As a result of post-traumatic stress disorder, the lives of victims of sexual violence by the Russian military have drastically changed in their families and in society. The consequences form the victims individually specific and distorted experience, peculiarities of sexual relations, degree and state of deprivation. In cases where the victim was intimidated, forced to engage in sexual relations in childhood and adolescence, raped several times, the symptoms are complicated by the formation of persistent post-traumatic stress disorder. Legal guarantees are the decisive legal means of ensuring, implementing, protecting human and citizen rights in Ukraine.

The anti-social, criminal behavior of Russians, during the military aggression against Ukraine, uncontrolled aggressiveness, murders, mutilations, torture of civilians, rape of women, girls and children require legal assessment, particularly at the international level.

Key words: criminal offenses of a sexual nature, mental disorders, psychosomatics, criminology, verification, mental deprivation.
