Introduction:
The site was initially created by a group of researchers and experts on research of evidence of crimes against the national security and sovereignty of Ukraine, peace, humanity, and the international law (see https://psb4ukr.org/about/ for details -- in Ukrainian).

The site documents actions of the individuals, whose activity has signs of crimes researched by the Center; the complete list of the crimes is listed here: https://psb4ukr.org/about/zlochini/ (Ukrainian). Basically, these are the crimes against the national security and sovereignty of Ukraine, peace, humanity, and the international law (as stated above; they are documented in the Special Part of the Criminal Code of Ukraine -- please see http://www.legislationline.org/documents/action/popup/id/16257/ for English version of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

The activity of the web site is performed in accordance with the current legislation of Ukraine and international legal acts ratified by Ukraine. This is explained in detail here: https://psb4ukr.org/about/pidstavi-diyalnosti-centru/ (Ukrainian). In brief, the site acts in accordance with the Articles 17 and 65 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the Law of Ukraine on Information (the articles of particular interest are 11.2, 21.2, 29), the Law of Ukraine on Fight against Terrorism (mainly Articles 3 and 6), the Law of Ukraine on Personal Data Protection (the articles of particular interest are 6 and 7).

The site uses the information provided by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies (such as the Security Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Ukraine, etc) and information provided by the third parties. The information provided by the third parties must adhere to requirements listed here: https://psb4ukr.org/contacts/ (Ukrainian); ***the data submitted by the third parties are verified by the respective law enforcement agencies first***; if the submitted information is approved, the personnel of the Center uses it to conduct researches and submit evidence of the signs of the crimes researched by the Center.

The Center uses supplementary information sources which are available to the general public. These include (but not limited to) materials from social networks, information from specialized blog, forums, mass media, etc.

Therefore, the information published on the web site does not contain any personal data: according to the Law of Ukraine on Personal Data Protection (in particular, Article 7.2), "Provisions of part one of this Article shall not apply if processing of personal data: Concerns accusations in crimes, court sentences, implementation of the authorities by a state body, as defined by the law with regard to execution of tasks of operational and search or counterintelligence activity, antiterrorism; Concerns the data that were disclosed by the personal data subject". In other words, all data published by the person (this includes photos, videos, names, age, etc) in, for example, social networks are not considered to be personal.

The site provides a clear way to send complaints in situations when a person thinks the data published on the site are incorrect or should be removed. The process is outlined here: https://psb4ukr.org/skarga/ (Ukrainian). In brief, such a person is required to send their complaint to lyst2mvs@ccc.GOV.UA or contact a local branch of the Security Service of Ukraine.

We would like to emphasize that all complaints are sent to the government email address (CCC.GOV.UA zone) and not to an email address owned by a private person -- sapienti sat.

The Center partners with the Security Service of Ukraine, the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Ukraine, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine. More information is available in the Ukrainian or Belarus Wikipedia: http://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9C%D0%B8%D1%80%D0%BE%D1%82%D0%B2%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%86%D1%8C_%28%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%B1%D1%81%D0%B0%D0%B9%D1%82%29, http://be.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9C%D1%96%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B2%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%86%D0%B0,_%D0%B2%D1%8D%D0%B1-%D1%81%D0%B0%D0%B9%D1%82

The site has positive feedback from the Adviser to Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko (https://www.facebook.com/anton.gerashchenko.7/posts/773785782708271; he announced the opening of the web site and explained why what the site does is absolutely legal), the Commander of the "Myrotvorets" Battalion Andrew Teteruk (https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=816000078438658&id=100000860206870), the coordinator of “Narodnyi Tyl” volunteer movement George Tuka (https://www.facebook.com/george.tuka/posts/683067715140968).

While we agree that the site contains information unsuitable for children, we strongly disagree that the information is unreliable -- because it gets verified by the law enforcement agencies first (according to our internal audit,the information is correct for 99.97% -- see https://psb4ukr.org/128020-byvayut-li-sluchajnye-oshibki-pri-zanesenii-obektov-issledovaniya-v-chistilishhe/ (Russian)).

We would also like to address this comment: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/psb4ukr.org/comment-86014849. Let us pretend that there are no insults in the comment.

First of all, the user accuses the site of publishing personal data. According to the Law of Ukraine on Personal Data Protection, data that were disclosed by the personal data subject can be published and/or processed by anyone. That is, if the person discloses any personal information, others are free to use. Moreover, Articles 3 and 6 of the Law of Ukraine on Fight against Terrorism, and Articles 17 and 65 of the Constitution of Ukraine confirm that it is legal to provide such information to the general public.

Next, the user accuses the site of providing links to profiles in social networks. It is unclear for us why a link to a profile is considered to be a "forbidden" or "illegal" information, and by following this logic, Google should also be outlawed.

The user says there are/were "Malware or viruses". There are no evidence supporting this claim. Moreover, according to the most fresh report from http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/psb4ukr.org/, the site is clean. The same relates to this comment as well: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/psb4ukr.org/comment-86130441

The user also says that the site is/was engaged in phishing. This is also false, the site has never been listed for phishing. Moreover, the personnel of the Center actively helps to fight phishing in Ukraine and do their best to stop other cyber crimes,such as DDoS attacks.

The user accuses the site of scam. Of course, no evidence were provided. Moreover, mistaken entries are deleted for free, no money involved -- all you need is to write to lyst2sbu@ccc.gov.ua and provide all necessary information. The situation with extortion to get removed is simply impossible.

The user says that the site is Potentially illegal. Hopefully, the explanation provided above is enough to convince them that both the site and the Center act in accordance with the Law and Constitution of Ukraine, and these activities are approved by the Interior Ministry of Ukraine (see the comments by the Adviser to Interior Minister regarding the site).

The user accuses us of Misleading claims or (being) unethical. Once again, no evidence provided. If the user disagrees with something, they are welcome to complain to lyst2mvs@ccc.gov.ua, the process is fully transparent and described here: https://psb4ukr.org/skarga/

The user warns of Privacy risks. The site does not collect any information from the visitors nor requires them to log in or otherwise identify themselves. We don't know what to say here.

The user says that the site is Suspicious. Again, there were no explanation as to why. We consider this to be personal opinion of this user.

The user says that there is "Hate, discrimination" on the site. No evidence provided. If we call the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic" terrorist organizations, this is because the Security Service of Ukraine considers them to be terrorist organizations (search http://www.sbu.gov.ua/sbu/control/en/index for "DPR terrorist organization" to see that); if we call Russian soldiers without insignia siding with the terrorists "mercenaries", this is because the Russian Federation officially claims that there are no Russian soldiers in Ukraine; if we call the so-called Armed Forces of Novorossia "illegal armed groups/formations", this is because the Donbas and Luhansk regions of Ukraine are Ukraine, Ukraine considers those "Armed Forces" to be illegal and therefore "illegal armed groups", etc.

As for "Adult content", this is true: there is no pornography but there are photos that can be considered cruel or inappropriate by some people. Yes, we agree that the site is probably not suitable for children.

"Gruesome or shocking" -- this is a personal opinion, there is nothing we can say here.

Nothing personal, but according to the comments left by that user: https://www.mywot.com/en/user/6048252/comments, he gives negative ratings to the sites which does not share his political views. And judging by the facts that he posts unsupported accusations, it looks like he might be abusing the site.

Has privacy policy?
