EU Advisory Mission Supports Ukrainian Prosecutors with Crucial IT Equipment

January 18, 2024

Reinforcing the capabilities of the Ukrainian Prosecution System plays a significant role in streamlining the investigation and prosecution of international crimes committed by Russia in Ukraine.

Aiming at enhancing the ability of Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General (OPG) to carry on with the job while addressing the many challenges Ukraine’s security sector face at time of war, the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) Ukraine handed over 60 laptops with cutting-edge software on January 17 in Kyiv.

The equipment will reach the new Victims & Witnesses Coordination Centre, the Interagency Working Group of Military Experts, prosecutors focused on international crimes affecting the environment, the Department for the Protection of Children’s Interests and Combatting Domestic Violence, the Criminal Policies and Investments Protection Department, and prosecutors coordinating Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group activities.

Additionally, power stations and solar panels will be provided to the regional prosecutor’s offices in Kyiv, Sumy, and Chernihiv, addressing the pressing needs in areas prone to frequent power cuts.

This kind of support also reflects EUAM Ukraine’s commitment to the ongoing reforms in the country.

“Today’s delivery of the IT equipment is a tangible expression of our commitment to supporting Ukraine’s endeavours in the realm of civilian security sector reform given the circumstances. We will continue to support the OPG’s noble quest for justice for all the victims and survivors of this terrible war,” stated the Head of EUAM Ukraine, Rolf Holmboe, addressing the Ukrainian partners, including Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, Andrii Kostin.

Rolf Holmboe stressed how, as part of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group, the Mission will continue providing support to the Office of the Prosecutor General in cooperation with partners from the UK, the USA, and other EU member states.

EUAM stands with Ukraine.
