DNR Supreme Court Big Thinks Sov Model Best for Republic’s Courts

01 judge and defendant...


Eduard Yakubovsky, the Chairman of the DNR Supreme Court (DNR VS), said, “I took the Soviet system as a model in the formation of our judicial system. It provides a legal basis for making fair judgements. There were serious problems in the USSR, but this model coupled with a reformed political system allows it to give the best results. Yes, from the point of view of some European parties, the Soviet system wasn’t perfect, but if you look at the statistics, the system didn’t overturn many of the sentences imposed by the courts. It’s necessary to take into account the financial constraints of the time. The Soviet judicial system was more economical than its Ukrainian counterpart is.  As long as our country isn’t rich, the Soviet legacy is just right”.
