ECHR began to examine the complaint of MH17 crash victims' families against Ukraine
The lawsuit was filed by German nationals, relatives of the dead passengers
European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has started to consider a complaint against Ukraine in the case of the crash of the Boeing 777 in the east of the country on July 17, 2014, reports "Kommersant".
The lawsuit was filed by German nationals, relatives of the dead passengers. The petition states that the Ukrainian authorities have not closed the airspace over the territory where the fighting took place between the Ukrainian military and the militants.
It is noted that the applicants must convince the ECHR, that they ran out of options for the legal protection in the Ukrainian courts, as required by the European Convention on Human Rights.
It is reported that a similar lawsuit to Russia the ECHR has not yet begun to consider. Earlier it was reported that relatives of the MH17 crash victims demanded compensation from Russia and Vladimir Putin, the country's president.
