Sila Prava received the first ruling in favor of the wounded defender of Ukraine
On July 15, 2016, for the first time ever, Popilniansky District Court, Zhytomyr region, recognized the legal fact of military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and, consequently, the injury of the Ukrainian officer who was wounded performing his military service duties in Donbass.
