During the event, ARC expert, Professor Borys Babin presented a systematic study of criminal proceedings for the crime of genocide in the legal system of Ukraine, describing both the experience of relevant cases of the Holodomor and the deportation of the Crimean Tatars, and the current practice of countering the propaganda of genocide, committed by the aggressor.

ARC expert Associate Professor Andrei Chvalyuk characterized the situation regarding the criminal “glorification” of the aggressor’s military in the Crimea as a threat to the security of the Ukrainian territories deoccupied in the future.
