The high specialized court for civil and criminal cases has forbidden courts to use in its decisions, the names of the occupied territory of “Donetsk national Republic” and “Luhansk people’s Republic”
This is stated in the information letter of VSSU courts of lower levels.
“The corresponding analysis revealed a different approach in the use of judicial decisions to the wording, reflecting the place of occurrence of facts of legal significance, in particular of the facts of birth and death. So, in some cases in violation of legislative approaches to the definition of the legal status of the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, in the operative part of judgments referred to the fact that the relevant fact (birth or death) took place in the settlements of the “Donetsk people’s Republic”.
In this context it should be noted that this practice is unacceptable, because the fact of the existence of any so-called “Donetsk people’s Republic”, nor the so-called “Luhansk people’s Republic” not recognized by the Ukrainian authorities, and in some areas, cities, towns and villages of Donetsk and Lugansk regions introduced a special procedure for local self-government. They are recognized as temporarily occupied territories”, — stated in the document.
