On February 3, 2021, the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center hosted a press conference “Modern Challenges of Collaborators’ Assessment and Sanctions Policy”. At this event, the Methodology for assessing the feasibility of imposing personal sanctions on persons, cooperating with the occupation “administration” of Crimea was presented.

The specificity of the new Methodic is to calculate the feasibility of imposing sanctions on a particular person in points, according to established criteria. These include citizenship, legality of stay in the Crimea, special obligations to Ukraine and their termination, status in the system of occupation “powers” and attitude to its tasks, the negative consequences of cooperation with the occupiers, the duration of such cooperation, the assessment of person’s activities by the occupiers.

Reduction of the amount of points for a particular person is possible under the conditions of positive needs of its cooperation with the occupiers (doctors, firefighters, etc.), taking into account the grounds for termination of cooperation and other objective factors. Professor Borys Babin, co-author of the Methodic and expert of the “Association of Reintegration of Crimea”, took part in the presentation. The Methodic has already been sent to the authorized authorities of Ukraine, and the ways of its application will be worked out with foreign partners and international organizations.
