    A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the post highlighting the one-year anniversary of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and the role eDiscovery may play in war crimes investigation and litigation.

    Editor’s Note: One of the most accurate and detailed sources for ongoing updates on the Ukraine crisis is the Russian Offensive Campaign Assessment from the Institute for the Study of War. The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) is a 501(c)(3) organization and produces strictly non-partisan, non-ideological, fact-based research. ISW seeks to promote an informed understanding of war and military affairs through comprehensive, independent, and accessible open-source research and analysis. ISW’s research is made available to the general public, military practitioners, policymakers, and media members. Providing a daily synthesis of key events related to the Russian aggression against Ukraine, ISW updates may benefit investigators and litigators as they follow the business, information technology, and legal trends and trajectories impacted by and stemming from the current Russo-Ukrainian conflict.


    Uncovering War Crimes: The Role of eDiscovery in the Russo-Ukrainian Conflict


    Today marks the one-year anniversary of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. As we reflect on the devastating impact of the conflict, it’s important to consider how advanced technologies can play a crucial role in uncovering the truth and holding those responsible accountable. The discipline of eDiscovery is one such tool that can be used to identify, preserve and analyze electronic data related to war crimes committed during the Russo-Ukrainian War. This technology can help collect valuable evidence, such as digital communications, emails, and social media posts that shed light on the actions of individuals and organizations involved in the conflict. eDiscovery can also provide an efficient and effective way of managing the vast amount of electronic data involved in such cases, allowing investigators and legal teams to analyze the information quickly and accurately.

    During the past year, ComplexDiscovery has regularly published aggregate updates of the daily assessments and corresponding maps on the Russo-Ukrainian Conflict with permission of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW). These updates are essential reading for cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery professionals as they consider investigations and litigation relating to war crimes committed during the Russo-Ukrainian Conflict. Additionally, by visiting the daily source reports directly from ISW, one can view the detailed and linked Open-Source Intelligence (OSINIT) references that may be useful in chronologically constructing and supporting investigational timelines related to war crimes in Ukraine.

    As a publication dedicated to promoting and supporting the use of advanced technologies in legal discovery and data governance, ComplexDiscovery continues to stand in support of Ukraine and its efforts to seek justice and accountability for war crimes committed during the ongoing conflict with Russia.

    About the Institute for the Study of War Research Methodology

    ISW’s research methodology relies on both primary and secondary sources, enabling researchers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the situation on the ground. In order to analyze military and political developments in any given area, ISW’s research analysts must wholly understand the systems of enemy and friendly forces. They must also understand the population demographics, physical terrain, politics, and history of that area. This lays the analytical foundation for understanding the reasons for particular developments and fulfilling their assigned research objectives. ISW analysts also spend time in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in order to gain a better understanding of the security and political situation and to evaluate the implementation of current strategies and policies. Our researchers compile data and analyze trends, producing a granular analysis of developments in areas of research, producing an accurate, high-resolution, timely, and thorough picture of the situation. ISW’s research methodology guarantees its success and commitment to improving the nation’s ability to execute military operations, achieve strategic objectives, and respond to emerging problems that may require the use of American military power.
