Ukrainas advokatsamfund har också publicerat ställningstaganden och öppna brev enligt nedanstående.

  • Open letter to international law firms, legal associations and regulators urging to terminate provision of legal services to any businesses that continues operation in the Russian Federation. UBA believes that the legal community is instrumental in supporting operations and functioning of big businesses who are still present in the Russian Federation. Indirectly, legal services enable good wellbeing of such companies and, consequently, enable the war. In contrast, cutting the chain of services and supplies that are vital for businesses operating in Russia will have a strong effect and will encourage withdrawal. Please see the full text of the letter at the link.
  • Open letter to international companies and businesses operating in Russia. In our letter, we argue that every dollar that business invests in Russian economy are spent not for humanitarian purposes, not for education, human rights protection or rule of law but for financing military actions in Ukraine. Every day of war in Ukraine costs Russia around USD 20 billion(!), and these sums come from the biggest taxpayers to the Russian budget. Please see the full text of the letter at the link
  • Open letter to EU institutions urging to strengthen economic and financial sanctions against the Russian Federation, and to prevent continued trade with Russia through third countries, like Kazakhstan, which will negate the effect of sanctions and international pressure on businesses.

  • Call to the Contracting Parties to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide to use all available means to prevent genocide of the population of Ukraine. Russia’s actions fall under the elements provided by Article 2 of the Convention, thus there is a reasonable ground to believe that the crime of genocide is being committed against Ukraine.
