The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) will not be able to oblige Russia to leave the territory of Donbas. Ivan Lishchyna, the Deputy Justice Minister for ECHR affairs claimed this as Ukrainian News reported.

'It (ECHR – 112 international) cannot oblige Russia to leave Donbas. The issue is not only about the violation of the human rights. Two points are important for us: the recognition of the fact of the effective control, in other words, recognition of the occupation and the recognition of the violation of the human rights by the Russian troops and mercenaries for which Russia is responsible. And the court can oblige to pay the proper compensation', he claimed.
