Ilyashev & Partners is providing pro bono advice to the Ukrainian Red Cross Society on the day-to-day business activities of its organizations at the national and local levels.
According to the firm, “for over 100 years in a row, one of the most important priorities of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society has been to assist the state in providing comprehensive assistance and support to the most vulnerable groups of the population. The society runs various programs and numerous charitable projects aimed to ensure such assistance. Unlike other charitable organizations, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society has a special humanitarian mandate, humanitarian initiative as a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and operates under the Law of Ukraine On Ukrainian Red Cross Society and the Law of Ukraine On the Symbols of the Red Cross, the Red Crescent and the Red Crystal in Ukraine.”
“We consider the provision of pro bono legal services to the Ukrainian Red Cross Society as an extremely serious professional and social responsibility,” said Managing Partner Mikhail Ilyashev, who leads the firm's team. “We are excited about the opportunity to be of service to the Red Cross Society in its mission, which is difficult to overestimate."
