Reading time: 4 min.

Of course, modern society is not perfect. In particular, situations often arise when a person/group of persons commits violent acts and threatens to appropriate movable and immovable property owned by third parties. The above actions are illegal from the point of view of forensics. They qualify under Article 187 of the Criminal Code, that is, as robbery. In this article, we will consider in detail how the interests of the suspect are protected under this article. If you need a lawyer under Article 187 of the Criminal Code, the specialists of our Prykhodko and Partners law office will help you with this.


Liability provided for in Article 187 of the Criminal Code

To begin with, let's distinguish such concepts as "robbery", "robbery", "theft". According to the current Criminal Code of Ukraine, robbery is one of the most dangerous and serious crimes against private property. The basis of robbery is a combination of the desire to get someone else's property combined with the purpose of bodily harm.

Liability for robbery depends on the circumstances of the crime. Article 187 of the Criminal Code provides for deprivation of liberty for a term of 3 to 15 years. In addition, such punishment as confiscation of property may be applied. Therefore, the support of a professional lawyer will be needed to effectively protect the interests of the accused.

Robbery is significantly different from robbery and theft in the way the crime is committed. Theft and robbery do not involve the use of violent actions. At the same time, threats or violent actions are used during the robbery. From the moment of the attack, criminal acts under Article 187 of the Criminal Code are considered to have ended. That is, even if the offender did not manage to seize the property of third parties, but caused damage to the health/life of a person, the crime will fall under the category of "robbery".

A competent lawyer will help distinguish robbery from theft and robbery. Lawyers Prykhodko and Partners will be able to correctly classify the actions of the suspect and, if necessary, achieve reclassification of the crime.

Subjects of the crime under Article 187 of the Criminal Code are:

  • Persons who have committed a criminal act for the first time.
  • Persons who committed a criminal act based on a prior conspiracy, as part of a group of persons.
  • Persons who have not committed a criminal act for the first time.

A factor that significantly increases liability under Article 187 of the Criminal Code is illegal entry into someone's home.
