The Ukrainian government must pursue a more aggressive legal policy toward Russia and demand compensations to be paid to Donbas residents for the damage done by Moscow. West’s legal firms can assist Ukraine in bringing its suits to international courts, US Atlantic Council expert and ex-president of Freedom House Adrian Karatnytsky told ZIK June 28.

 “Ukraine must look for ways to integrate the occupied territories and their populace. The most important thing here is to pursue an aggressive legal policy to repay the damage done by Russia to residents of Donbas, despite the fact that many residents are not loyal to Kyiv,” Karatnytsky said.

Ukraine is to protect Donbas residents in the rebel-held territories not by reaching a compromise with Russia but by an aggressive legal policy in courts, the expert said.

That Russia does not recognize the jurisdiction of foreign courts should not stop Kyiv’s compensation suits.

 “Russia has a lot of property abroad, the Nord Stream and similar state-owned gas/oil pumping facilities. Ukraine may get some part of this property as compensations – if positive court decisions are made.

There are many western legal firms that can assist to win compensation suits in courts – for a share in compensations, for example, Adrian Karatnytsky advised.
