The first meeting of the UNBA Board of Trustees this year was held to distribute charitable assistance received from international partners. The Board considered 17 applications from affected colleagues who found themselves in a difficult situation due to the war.

The relevant decisions were made on January 30, 2024.

Unfortunately, the legal community continues to suffer losses due to the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia. In December last year, a lawyer from Dnipropetrovs'k region was killed while performing combat missions. Members of the UNBA Board of Trustees supported the family of their colleague and provided his family with 50 thousand hryvnias of financial assistance.

It was decided to direct charitable assistance to three lawyers from Donetsk, Kyiv and Volyn regions who were seriously injured in the combat zone and are undergoing expensive treatment.

Financial support was also provided to two attorneys from Odesa and Donetsk regions who need to take vital medicines on a regular basis and do not have the means to purchase them.

In addition, the UNBA Board of Trustees supported three more advocates - from Kherson, Mariupol and Bakhmut. Their housing was completely destroyed as a result of hostilities and is not suitable for living.

The rest of the applications were rejected due to non-compliance with the priority criteria approved by the UNBA Board of Trustees.

As a reminder, the UNBA's official website has published the fourth Report on International Charitable Assistance to Ukrainian Advocates, which covers the period from the beginning of the full-scale aggression of the Russian Federation until August 15, 2023.
