State institutions responding to sexual violence during the full-scale armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine

Annotation

In this article, we will review the functions and powers of state institutions and their activities in preventing, investigating, and punishing conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV). Gaps in national legislation, a lack of clear terminology, a mechanism, and instructions for identifying, responding to, documenting, and investigating CRSV complicate the prosecution of perpetrators.
