On 17 May 2023, the Register of Damage Caused by the Aggression of the Russian Federation Against Ukraine (the "Register of Damage") was established under the auspices of the Council of Europe. As the parties to the Register of Damage noted this is an important step towards Russia's accountability.
The establishment of the Register of Damage is a welcome development for all individuals and legal entities who have suffered loss or damage due to Russia's aggression but were uncertain as to how to proceed with seeking compensation for their loss.
This note provides a brief overview of the role of the Register of Damage within the legal framework established to compensate for damages resulting from Russia's war on Ukraine.
