The most recent major first delivery comprised bulletproof vests, helmets, satellite radios, and regular walkie-talkies

As a result of Russian armed aggression, many personnel of justice institutions, prosecutors, including those documenting and investigating war and other atrocity crimes, judges, court staff, and personnel of the State criminal executive service continue to operate at the forefront of or close to hostilities. Together, these justice system bodies continue to work and perform their usual and war-related duties in an extremely difficult humanitarian and security environment.
