The article deals with the issues of documenting and using electronic evidence in criminal proceedings in Ukraine. The task of the study led to the use of dialectical, historical-legal, comparative-legal, system-structural, statistical and formal-logical methods. It is emphasized that the features of electronic (digital) evidence are that it is hidden (like fingerprints or DNA); easily crosses borders of jurisdiction; may be altered, damaged or destroyed; can be vulnerable, time sensitive. Signs and types of electronic evidence and basic principles of working with them are defined. The peculiarities of conducting operational and technical measures and unspoken investigative (investigative) actions with electronic evidence are analyzed: removal of information from transport telecommunication networks and removal of information from electronic information systems. Fixing of electronic evidence obtained as a result of investigative (investigative) actions or unspoken investigative (investigative) actions envisaged by the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine is carried out in compliance with certain requirements to the form and content. It is noted that forensic research is the main focus of documenting electronic evidence. It is emphasized that law enforcement officials should be properly trained in order to be able to effectively use electronic evidence in criminal proceedings, as well as to document the illegal activities of both individual offenders and organized criminal groups.
