Register of Damages Created

On May 17, in Reykjavík was established a mechanism that will record all the damage caused by the Russian war to Ukraine

For the first time in 18 years, the Council of Europe gathered for a summit to discuss urgent issues. Ukraine was also on the agenda. On the initiative of Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel, 46 Council countries signed a declaration on the creation of a register of damages caused to Ukraine by Russian aggression.

According to the prime minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmuhal, Ukraine's losses due to wars amount to ≈$ trillion, and the drop in GDP = 35%. Every day, Russia damages Ukraine in the amount of $370 million to $1.1 billion.

"The Council of Europe once again came to the defence of the victims of aggression," Emmanuel Macron.

"Only by bringing the aggressor to justice will Europe be able to prevent bloody wars on the continent," Denys Shmuhal.

The office of the International Registry will be located in Holland. Also, requests from individuals and legal entities regarding destruction and compensation will be registered, and evidence of Russian violations of the rules of war will be recorded.
