Following the aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, a self-help platform "Basecamp: judges and prosecutors for Ukraine" has been launched at the initiative of the Presidents of three Council of Europe committees: the Consultative Council of European Judges (CCJE), the Consultative Council of European Prosecutors (CCPE) and the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ).
The platform is a free online exchange tool, accessible also on mobile phones. It aims to facilitate informal communication between Ukrainian judges or prosecutors (located in or outside Ukraine) and judges and prosecutors from the other 45 Council of Europe member states.
The language used is English, but translation from and into Ukrainian will be available on request addressed to the moderator of the platform. In the name of solidarity between European legal professionals, they are encouraged to provide support to Ukrainian colleagues, be it of a personal, administrative, material or even professional nature, during this extremely difficult period for them.
UPDATE June 2022: the platform "Judges and prosecutors for Ukraine", which was set up under emergency circumstances in the form of a temporary online exchange tool, has been closed. The Council of Europe’s work both to support the Ukrainian judiciary and to reinforce the link between justice professionals in Europe continues in other formats.
