- The article deals with the importance for Ukraine, in the context of the hybrid war, of the implementation of international and humanitarian law in the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The authors argue the problem of war crimes and collaboration in the modern information society and its resolution is important for Ukraine, especially in the context of a powerful information confrontation between the Russian Federation and Ukraine as part of a hybrid war. Based on the processed documents and literature, the authors propose their own definition of collaboration and its manifestations by definition and typology. It was concluded that the Soviet totalitarian system had morally maimed many generations of people. The ideological and political uncertainty, confusion, social amorphism of a certain part of Ukraine’s population, the pro-Kremlin orientation of a part of Ukrainian politicians are still the main cause of collaboration and war crimes in Ukraine. Western Europe is characterized by the lawful and generally accepted international practice of prosecuting war criminals. In the former Soviet Union, this process was accompanied by mass violations of human rights, politicization of the judiciary, the application of collective responsibility, ignoring the principle of the presumption of innocence, and so on. In today’s Ukraine, in the face of the 6-year hybrid war, collaborative politicians are holding down on the legislative level responsibility for collaboration and war crimes.
