Prosecutor General Kostin: UK systematically supports Ukraine in legal sphere

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Andrii Kostin has held a meeting with United Kingdom Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

In the course of the meeting, Kostin thanked the people of the United Kingdom for providing assistance to Ukraine since the first day of the Russian invasion.

“Great Britain has been systematically and comprehensively supporting Ukraine, namely in the legal sphere,” Kostin noted.

The United Kingdom is one of the founders of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA), a multilateral initiative established by the United States, the European Union, and the United Kingdom to provide strategic advice and operational assistance to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office in the investigation and prosecution of Russian war crimes.

“We highly value the contribution of Great Britain to ensuring fair punishment for the perpetrators of international crimes,” Kostin added.

A reminder that United Kingdom Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons stated earlier that Great Britain would continue efforts to hold Russia accountable for the crimes against Ukrainian children and, for this purpose, it is necessary to help Ukraine win the war.
