Viktor Medvedchuk, a pro-Kremlin Ukrainian politician whose daughter's godfather is Russian President Vladimir Putin, and who has been accused of treason and handed over to Russia in a prisoner exchange last year, has been disbarred from practising law by the Qualification and Disciplinary Commission of the Bar of Kyiv Oblast.

Details: Tytykalo said that this was a victory for justice. Efforts to disbar Medvedchuk were ongoing since as early as 2016.
