Then the person can solve the problem. If the issue is complex, we need to examine documents. it is impossible online”, the coordinator of the Legal space Anna Martyniuk explained.
In such cases lawyers direct people to the nearest Law Community Center, to partners from Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union or local centers for free secondary legal aid.
