Presentation title: Russian-Ukrainian War: the challenges for the criminal justice of Ukraine

Abstract: Russia attacked Ukraine not on 22 February 2022, but in 2014 by the occupation of Crimea (using the fake referendum) and by the military conflict at Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

It is a difficult challenge for criminal justice too, especially for criminal procedure. Ukraine used the derogation of obligation according to the ECHR, also in criminal procedure, because since 2014 Ukraine is restricted in realization of jurisdiction in Crimea and in the parts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

The Ukrainian Parliament adopted amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine : in 2014 (new chapter IX-1 Special rules of pre-trial investigation during martial law, emergency or in the area of an ongoing counter-terrorist operation), in 2022 (new articles in the chapter IX-1, current title: Special regime of pre-trial investigation, trial in conditions of martial law).

It is important to discuss the reality of the criminal procedure of Ukraine in conditions of martial law.
