Law on the Con­sti­tu­tional Court of Ukraine (CCU)

This law un­blocks the work of the CCU and en­ables the ap­point­ment of new judges to va­cant po­si­tions. Cit­i­zens are given the right to make a con­sti­tu­tional com­plaint, i.e. an ap­peal to the CCU.

Changes in the codes of jus­tice pro­ce­dures

The new ver­sions of the codes clear the way for the in­tro­duc­tion of "e-jus­tice" and con­tain a num­ber of other in­no­va­tions: the op­por­tu­nity to sim­plify and ac­cel­er­ate the hear­ing of sim­ple cases, new meth­ods for le­gal pro­tec­tion and se­cur­ing claims, etc. At the same time, the fi­nal ver­sion in­cludes the Lo­zovyi amend­ments, which sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the op­er­a­tional bur­den on courts, although this prob­lem is not new.
