Creation of Ukraine’s military court meets international standards – Defense Ministry

Colonel of Justice of the Directorate of Legal Assistance of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Bobrov said this today at a briefing in the Defense Ministry, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The activity of the Military Court in Ukraine was suspended in 2010. This situation should be changed, as the activity of military courts is effectively carried out in more than 40 countries of the world, including in 12 European countries. Each fifth state, which has its own army, has military courts," Bobrov emphasized.

He clarifies that there is no need to amend the Constitution of Ukraine for the Military Court in Ukraine to resume its work again. It is enough to amend only the Law of Ukraine "On Judicial System and Status of Judges".

He expressed hope that this bill would be approved by the Verkhovna Rada.
