Also, the Minister of Justice claimed that ECHR officially confirmed the acceptance of the legal position of Ukraine in the first lawsuit against Russia.
‘We have good news. The European Court of Human rights officially confirmed the acceptance of the legal position of Ukraine in the first lawsuit against Russia upon the violation of the human rights in Crimea. We sent a huge documentation package and this legal position where we disprove all Russian positions. A week ago ECHR officially sent the confirmation of the acceptance of this position’, the Minister added.
‘We wait from the ECHR the confirmation of the defined procedural schedule of the hearing of the first case and all following cases. The first case is the most dynamically accepted for hearing. To tell the truth, it is a new practice for the European Court because it did not hear such huge, big by the volume, unprecedented by the amount of the evidence cases.
Petrenko also noticed that the evidence gave by Ukraine disprove the false Russian statements that they helped the Crimean people to conduct the referendum.
‘These cases include dozens of thousands documents and a big amount of the witnesses. All the Russian statements are disproved by our document that includes more than 120 pages without enclosures and a lot of videos with the testimony of the witnesses’, the Minister commented.
‘There are some interesting facts about the amount of the military forces of Russia that annexed Crimea and pretended to be not the Russian soldiers but green men. We could gather the evidence, define and identify all the division’s commanders, military groups that were in Crimea’, he added.
Ukraine filed five lawsuits to the European Court of Human rights against Russia upon the occupation of Crimea, military aggression in Donbas, violation of the human rights on the occupied territories and illegal transfer of the orphaned children to Russia.
