On June 27, 2023, Asters Partner Markiyan Kliuchkovskyi was voted in as Executive Director of the International Register of Damage Caused by the Aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. Following the appointment, Kliuchkovskyi resigned from his partnership at Asters on July 1, 2023.

According to Asters, “the Secretary General of the Council of Europe will now formally appoint Markiyan. Earlier, on June 24, 2023, Markiyan's candidacy for this position was approved for nomination by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.”

According to the firm, “the Register of Damage has been established in May 2023, and it will have its seat in The Hague. Its function is to serve as a record of claims and evidence on damage, loss, or injury caused by the Russian aggression against Ukraine. It paves the way toward a future international comprehensive compensation mechanism for the victims of Russian aggression. 42 states, as well as the European Union, are members of the Register.”

Asters Co-Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy, who previously co-headed the International Arbitration and Cross-Border Litigation department with Kliuchkovskyi, will now assume leadership of the practice.

“We are grateful to Markiyan for our long-standing cooperation, thank him for his leadership and valuable contribution to the firm's development, and wish him success in his new role,” Didkovskiy commented. “While it is always sad when a great colleague and a close friend departs, we also believe that his work will be of great benefit to Ukraine. His unique experience and expertise will be instrumental in establishing a solid legal framework to hold the aggressor state accountable for the damage caused to Ukraine and Ukrainians.”
