Criminal investigators in Kherson Oblast receive equipment from EU Advisory Mission


On 16 November, the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) to Ukraine donated photo and video recording equipment to the Kherson regional police. Criminal investigators were given cameras, computers and monitors to help them record crime scenes.

“Because of the occupation, we lost almost all our equipment: cars, cameras, computers, so this support from the EU is timely and important for us,” said Oksana Zaporozhchenko, Head of the Criminal Support Department of the National Police (NPU) in Kherson Region. She personally visited the EUAM field office in Odesa and spoke about the problems currently faced by law enforcement officers in the recently liberated territories of the region. 

Antti Hartikainen, head of EUAM in Ukraine, said that a team of EU experts would soon visit Mykolaiv to meet law enforcement officials and discuss their needs regarding the investigation and prosecution of international crimes and the protection of public order.
