On 13 April 2022, the Council of the EU amended the mandate of the EU Advisory Mission for Civilian Security Sector Reform in Ukraine (EUAM Ukraine) - a non-executive civilian mission established on 22 July 2014 with the aim of supporting Ukraine in developing sustainable, accountable, and efficient security services that strengthen the rule of law. Under the extended mandate, EUAM Ukraine may now provide support to Ukrainian authorities in order to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of any international crimes committed in the context of Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine. According to the amended mandate, the mission may now provide Ukrainian authorities with strategic advice and training on related matters, donate funds and equipment to Ukrainian authorities, and ensure close cooperation with the International Criminal Court and Eurojust as well as with EU Member States acting in direct support of the investigation and prosecution of international crimes in Ukraine.
