On this page, you can download our Ukraine Country of Origin Information (COI) Repository, developed jointly by Asylos and Clifford Chance. This repository contains a list of national, regional and international sources and presents current country information on stateless, at risk of statelessness, and undocumented people under research headings. This initiative started as an emergency response to the crisis in Ukraine in February 2022.

The COI Repository is intended as background reference material for legal representatives and those assisting asylum seekers from Ukraine, to assist in their preparation of the case or registration. The COI Repository should be used as a tool to help identify relevant COI. The information cited in the repository can be considered by decision makers in assessing asylum applications and appeals. Legal representatives are welcome to submit relevant excerpts cited in this document for their specific case to decision makers (including judges) to assist in the determination of an asylum claim or appeal. However, this document should not be submitted directly, in its entirety or in isolation as evidence to decision-makers in asylum applications or appeals.

The information cited in this document is illustrative, but not exhaustive of the information available in the public domain, nor is it determinative of any individual human rights or asylum claim. Submissions should always be complemented by case-specific COI research.

While we strive to be as comprehensive as possible, no amount of research can ever provide an exhaustive picture of the situation. It is therefore important to note that the absence of information should not be taken as evidence that an issue, incident or violation does not exist.

We are COI research experts and adhere to strict research principles of providing relevant, objective, transparent, timely and reliable sources material. We therefore include all discoverable relevant information, whether or not supportive of any human rights or asylum claim. It is therefore imperative that legal representatives and those assisting asylum seekers read the whole COI Repository and submit only relevant excerpts cited in this document for their specific case in addition to conducting their own case-specific COI research.

Due to the rapid unfolding of events in Ukraine during February 2022, as well as internal organisational matters, it was agreed that research would only cover sources published from 1 January 2014.


We are looking for advisors and legal representatives who have utilised this report. If you would like to provide feedback please fill out this form or email [email protected].

If you would like to suggest additional research areas or sources to include that would assist you in supporting your clients, please do share them with us by emailing the address above so that others can benefit from them too.

Are you stateless, at risk of statelessness, or undocumented, and in need of advice? Or are you supporting an individual?

Asylos does not provide legal or other advice to individuals. However, there are other organisations who specialise in this. We encourage you to make use of the following resources:

  • European Network of Statelessness (ENS) compiles information on the situation in Ukraine, including a list of organisations providing advice to stateless people fleeing Ukraine. ENS also provides country information for refugee response actors and affected individuals in Hungary, Moldova, Poland, and Romania. Find out more about ENS
  • Ukraine Advice Project UK
    Immigration lawyers have launched an advice service to provide free help and support to Ukrainians seeking refuge in the UK in the wake of the Russian invasion. 
    The project is being supported by DLA Piper.
    Get in touch by emailing [email protected] if you're:

    • a qualified immigration lawyer looking to volunteer pro bono advice, or
    • a Ukrainian national seeking immigration legal advice
