However, the court refused to consider the minutes of the NACP, as the case “is not geographically located within the jurisdiction of the Podilsky district court” and referred the case back to the NACP, the Agency referred it to another court.

Recall that in 2015 the District administrative court of Kyiv satisfied the claim of Ministry of justice of Ukraine, banning the Communist party of Ukraine. However, the party continues to work according to the laws of the activities of the party may be prohibited only after the final decision of the last court of appeal. Such a decision yet.
