“Among those who left, there were many professionals, decent people. Now about 200 ships in less than 50% of the judges. The same arithmetic in the appellate courts. There are dozens of ships where a maximum of two judges. There are places where the courts are not functioning due to the lack of judges as such. In the resort Yaremche, for example.
