Integrites has been providing pro bono legal advice to the military personnel protecting Ukraine in the war against Russia, as well as to members of their families.
According to Integrites, “since March 2022, dozens of families have already received legal aid. Among them – the family of a Ukrainian military serviceman who has allegedly been held captive by the Russians. The soldier’s wife lost connection with him in March 2023 to find out later about his alleged captivity. This family has a son, also serving in the military, who required legal help after severe injury in the frontline.”
According to Integrites, the firm’s team “consulted the soldier’s wife regarding the documentation of the fact and circumstances of his captivity, as well as regarding application for social benefits provided by the law for such cases. [The firm] has been also advising the couple’s son on the remuneration for medical treatment and rehabilitation, and on the application for combatant status.”
Integrites’ team included Partner Oleksandr Onishchenko, Associate Mykola Yerema, Junior Associate Fedir Vasylenko, and Paralegal Viktoriia Bondar.
