Integrites has provided pro bono defense representation to a soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine concerning criminal charges brought against him by the military command. The firm also advised the soldier's family on obtaining monetary compensation.

According to Integrites, "the client, a combatant in various regions of Ukraine in 2022-2024, received serious injuries in December 2022 near the city of Bakhmut, Donetsk region. After a complex medical treatment and long rehabilitation, he returned to the unit but, due to complications from his previous injuries, he received new ones and was unable to continue his combat mission. His refusal to return to combat positions for health reasons resulted in the initiation of an internal investigation, followed by the criminal proceedings opened against him."

The firm reports that, in February 2024, "all the charges against the client were dropped at the initial stage of the investigation. Our team also advises the client on the social security and remuneration for the servicemen, obtaining the status of a combatant, and the collection of due monetary compensation for the period of his treatment and rehabilitation." In addition, the firm is also advising the soldier's "mother regarding disbursements related to the captivity of her husband (the client's father) by Russian forces."

The Integrites team included Partner Oleksandr Onischchenko, Associate Mykola Yerema, and Paralegal Viktoriia Bondar.
