Launch of Register of Damage for Ukraine

On June 28, the agreements of 45 states on the RDU were expanded in Strasbourg, and its head was appointed

A meeting of the Council of Europe DG Human Rights and Rule of Law was held in Strasbourg. The international register of losses caused to Ukraine and Russia during the meeting was expanded. The Council of Europe DG also appointed the head of the register the Ukrainian Markiyan Kliuchkovskyi became. The register will record every episode of destruction/loss/harm caused in Ukraine or against it by Russian legal entities and individuals. The register will be the basis for further claims for damages and reparations.

"The perpetrators of war crimes, including the crime of aggression, must be held accountable, and justice should be brought to victims, to survivors, to the families of those who did not survive, and to the state of Ukraine," secretary general of the Council of Europe Marija Pejcinovic Buric.

"The Register of damage stands as the most valuable outcome of the Reykjavik Summit, and today's meeting marks a significant milestone as we begin to make the necessary decisions that will pave the way for its operations," the president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Tiny Kox.

45 states took part in the foundation of the register.
