Enhancing the Capacity of Investigators and Prosecutors to Investigate Hate Crimes in Ukraine

Training on the hate crimes began this summer for future coaches – prosecutors and police officers. Participants took a two-month course on the HELP training platform and improved their knowledge in this topic.

On October 23, 2021, the final part of the offline training ended. Future trainers from the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office in the Military and Defense Sphere, regional prosecutor’s offices and the National Police of Ukraine underwent a three-day training for trainers, during which they:

deepened knowledge of hate crimes;

gained an understanding of the standards of work with this category of crimes;

got acquainted with the tools and services for remote training.

Training with talented trainers – Council of Europe consultants Iryna Fedorovych, Oksana Huz and Andrii Donets is supported by the Council of Europe Office in Ukraine, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine and the National Police of Ukraine within the project “Strengthening access to justice through non-judicial mechanisms for legal protection of victims , hate crimes and hate speech in the Eastern Partnership countries”.
