The fact that you are so willing to offer up your countrymen for beatings probably puts you at the front of the line.

I'd have agreed with that sentiment if it were 5 or 10 years after the transaction. Look at it this way:It is the moral and ethical thing to do, hands down.
A Ukrainian family has a home and property that has been in their family for several generations, along with all of the property therein. They are in danger of being killed in the current fighting, and decide to abandon their home in order to flee to Poland and escape the war.
Now I give you two scenarios to follow those events.
The first scenario, A) The family returns to Ukraine within several years to reclaim their property and home. There's a decent chance that they won't have to fight hard to get it back, and won't have a hard time proving it was theirs to begin with.
The second scenario, B) an ancestor two or three generations down the family line decides to follow their history and discovers details of the former generational property in Ukraine. It's been 80 years since the family had to flee. Now they want to lay ancestral claim to the home and property.
Is that 2nd scenario fair to you? Mind you...they didn't SELL the home, they simply abandoned it to flee the fighting. Are they still entitled to get it back almost a century later? Not IMO. A sad story and quite unfortunate no doubt, but it doesn't entitle them to the property that someone else obtained and now holds.
