KYIV - May 25, 2019. Ukraine's victory in the International Tribunal in Hamburg was made possible due to the team of Lana Zerkal, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs on European Integration, member of the UBA Board, as well as military prosecutors who during the pre-trial investigation actually collected seventeen volumes of evidence in the course of 7 days of the Russian Federation's aggression against Naval Forces of Ukraine.
We wish to thank the diplomatic corps of Ukraine and all who stood for the Ukrainian soldiers who protected us! The UBA community is proud of the achievements of the team lead by Lana Zerkal, which is difficult to overestimate. She participated in all rounds of talks on the political and economic part of the Association Agreement, representing the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, and in international courts. She is one of the most experienced specialists in the field of European integration.
The Hamburg Tribunal is the victory of the team of lawyers, which have formed a strong legal position in international courts.
The UBA community thanks everyone who worked for this victory and who managed to build a reinforced concrete position supported by 19 of the 20 judges. We are waiting for our military sailors and ships back in Ukraine!
