Since then, UNBA has received a vast number of letters not only from national but also from local advocates in various cities in Europe and the world. Colleagues expressed support for Ukrainian advocates and offered assistance.
"I cannot find words to express my gratitude for the material support we received in the form of charitable assistance from you, dear colleagues. These funds were distributed to those who suffered from the war. Unfortunately, a large number of our colleagues have already died, houses have been destroyed, homes have been lost. Your funds have helped these families to survive this misfortune and survive, " the UNBA/BCU President told European colleagues.
On behalf of the entire legal community, the President of UNBA/BCU Lidiya Izovitova thanked the legal organizations of Europe and the world for their help during a webinar held by the European Bar Association.
