CTRC employees continue to improve their professional skills

April 25, 2023

On April 22, a lawyer of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center, lawyer Volodymyr Liashenko, took part in a training on the topic Effective work of a lawyer in cases of collaborationism: civil and criminal aspects, organized by the UGSHR within the framework of the program Human Rights in Action.

Crimea has been under occupation for more than nine years, and in March 2022, the legislator supplemented the Criminal Code of Ukraine with Article 111-1 Collaboration Activities, which provides for liability from a ban on holding certain positions to imprisonment for fifteen years with confiscation of property!

We remind you that in 2021 the Crimean Tatar Resource Center developed a methodology for determining the degree of collaborationism of the population of the occupied peninsula by applying a number of indicators of responsibility, which should be applied in their entirety. Such a combination may determine the possibility of including a person on sanctions lists or even bringing a person to criminal liability. This technique can become an effective auxiliary tool for lawyers for a preliminary assessment of the prospects for bringing a particular person to justice for collaborationism.
