The managing partner of “Golovan and partners” Law Firm Igor Golovan and the founder of the “Isolation” Foundation Lyubov Mikhailova held a press conference. The purpose of the event is to call for discussion between human rights organizations, media and business representatives on the situation with the Fund. Recall that in 2014 the Foundation’s building was captured and destroyed by representatives of illegal formations in Donetsk.

Despite the fact that a lot of evidence has already been gathered according which the actions can be classified as a terrorist act, the Prosecutor General’s Office is delaying the suspicion. This does not allow the Fund to obtain the status of the injured party.

Moreover, at this time there are no statistics as to how such situations are disputed since we only have information about our clients, whose business has suffered from actions of illegal formations in the occupied territory and whose victim status has been proved.

Therefore, in order to increase the attention to the needs of business protection against the actions of illegal groups in the occupied territory, we would like to draw attention to a selective approach to the evaluation of certain criminal acts against business in the occupied territories.
