Ukraine preparing fifth claim against Russia at ECHR

Ukraine is preparing to file a claim against the Russian Federation to the European Court of Human Rights.

Ukrainian Deputy Justice Minister Natalia Sevostianova said on the Fifth Channel.

“Within the framework of the European Court of Human Rights, we have four major claims against the Russian Federation, and this week there will be another one, which we will report later about," Sevostianova said.

According to her, the Ukrainian side is transferring “gigabytes of information” to the server of the European Court.

“The Russian side in every possible way is trying to halt the process,” the deputy minister said.

Russia officially denies its participation in the conflict in Donbas, although it acknowledges the presence of Russian volunteers and the Russian army’s “servicemen on leave” in eastern Ukraine, Sevostianova added.

Ukraine filed its first claim against Russia in March 2014. The claim concerned the annexation of Crimea.
