As well as against the so-called "investigators", "prosecutors" and "judges" who organized politically motivated prosecutions, trials to Ukrainian citizens on the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

According to the results of the work carried out, in particular, in cooperation with the "Crimean Human Rights Group", representatives of the Ministry for Veterans Affairs prepared a draft regulation on the application of restrictive measures (sanctions) against several dozens of persons.

The draft regulation is sent to relevant authorities for approval. After its approval, the draft regulation will be submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for consideration and, if adopted by the Government, will become the basis for the decision of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine on the application of sanctions.
