EUAM enhances capacity of Ukrainian forensic experts to investigate war crimes

On 4 November, the EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM) provided equipment valued at €30,000 to the Forensic Support Unit of the National Police of Ukraine.

This support package included 13 working stations with monitors, eight large cameras with lenses and 20 small cameras. 

The donation will increase the capacity of Ukrainian investigators to gather evidence for war crime cases in the recently liberated cities of Lyman in the Donetsk region, Izyum in the Kharkiv region, and in the Kherson region.

This spring, EU Member States tasked EUAM to support Ukrainian counterparts to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of any cases of international crimes such as war crimes. During joint visits to the liberated districts of Bucha, Irpin and Khostomel in the Kyiv region, Mission experts provided advice and support in evidence collection, DNA profiling techniques, identification of disaster victims, crime scene management, trace collection and identification and more.
