Title

  • The Most Improbable War: Legal Transformations in Ukraine and Russia Before and During the Invasion

Summary

  • This entry in our Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series provided an overview of the historic roots of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. It was co-sponsored by the Law Library of Congress and the Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Special Interest Section (FCIL-SIS) of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL). The program included a review of background information about the Crimean and East Ukrainian territorial problem, which escalated into the current war; an overview of treaties and agreements between Ukraine and Russia; a review of the laws regulating the use of arms in both countries; and an examination of the legal regimes created in Ukraine and Russia before and during the invasion. Further, an analysis and comparison of legislation that was recently passed in Ukraine and Russia, coupled with Ukrainian legal scholars' discussion of a so-called "juridical front," provided an interesting picture of the situation on the ground and suggested how it would develop in the future. Resources available to research the laws of Ukraine were introduced during the presentation.
