After the Revolution of Dignity, Ukraine has adopted new legislation in the area of justice. Provisions of Law of Ukraine “On Ensuring a Right to a Fair Trial” (2015) provides everyone with a right to make video recording of any court trial without getting permission or approval of court. It was also discussed in society and concluded by legal professionals that uploading of videos to Youtube and Website, as well as posting videos to Social Networks (Facebook, etc.) does not infringe on the rights and interests of parties to a case because of principle of publicity of court hearings, which takes precedence over the right to privacy. The sole exception are circumstances under which trials may be held in closed hearings. For example, the court may, by reasoned decision, hold a closed hearing for the purpose of preserving the confidentiality of adoption or in order to protect public morals. Nevertheless, closed session can be held in exceptional circumstances and strictly in accordance with the law. Where the judge decides to hold a closed hearing, it is required that reasoned and substantiated judgement has to be issued in written form.
Initiative has been launched as a part of Open Court Project (OCP), developed by NGO «Open Ukraine».
