Representation at Ukrainian state authorities (police, procurator's office, etc.)

Ukraine as the sovereign, independent and progressive state as well as the inheritor of former Soviet regime has numerous state bodies, services, etc. called upon to supervise and protect rights and lawful interests of Ukrainian residents (corporate entities and natural persons) and non-residents of Ukraine (foreign corporate entities and natural persons) as well among all the other their duties.

Accordingly Ukrainian courts are not the only Ukrainian institution for protection of rights and lawful interests in Ukraine. More then this, some rights and interests in Ukraine can not be ensured, protected and restored by direct judicial claims, instead have to be protected by(in) numerous other Ukrainian state bodies and services, which sometimes have much better powers to protect rights and interests in easier and faster way.

The main of such state bodies and services in Ukraine (which are state-funded, have special powers and competence; and accordingly are obligated to render valid and timely support and protection as regarding various possible rights and interests – and if they are fault to discharge their functions timely and effectively – appropriate officials of such bodies and services are liable in full for any poor or non-fulfillment of their responsibilities and procedures provided by Ukrainian laws and bylaws up to the criminal liability) are:

3. State Security Service of Ukraine consists of appropriate local (territorial) departments: each region of Ukraine has one department of the State Security Service of Ukraine. State Security Service of Ukraine in fact is the inheritor of former Soviet (USSR) Committee for State Security (KGB) with similar tasks.
