We have not participated in that debate for several good reasons – the most important of which is that we are lawyers and professional investigators, not political pundits.
Our work has no political component. We were hired by clients. In this case, the government of Ukraine retained us to discover and document critical evidence that could be accepted in courts in Ukraine, the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as international tribunals.
A free and open debate about the conduct of present and past government officials in Ukraine should be conducted by its citizens alone, not by foreign commentators. For that reason, we have chosen to avoid injecting ourselves into internal discussions regarding Ukrainian political life.
