The European Court on Human Rights (ECHR) obliged the Russian Federation to pay compensation in the sum of 10 million euro for the deportation of the Georgians from Russia in 2006 as the ECHR reported.
The court decided that the deportations concerned at least 1,500 Georgians. The sum of the compensation should be divided between the German government and affected people. Each person, who was deported, will get 2,000 euro and those, who were illegally deprived of the liberty or whose terms of detention were violated will get 10-15,000 euro.
The decision was made with the support of 16 judges out of 17.
Totally, Georgia filed three lawsuits against Russia to the ECHR. Another two concern the events of war in 2008 and mass violation of the rights of the citizens in occupied territories in 2008-2018.
The ECHR made the initial decision on Georgia’s lawsuit on July 3, 2014. It did not agree on the voluntary payment of the compensation by Russia and on July 1, 2015, the Justice Ministry of Georgia filed the demand to establish the sum of compensation and attacked information about 1,795 victims of the discrimination policy of Russia.
As we reported over 4,000 complaints against Ukraine were filed to the European Court of Human Rights. They mainly concern consequences of Russia’s aggression on the east of the country and human rights violations in occupied Crimea.
Earlier Ukraine stated that it expects the rapid consideration of its statement to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) against Russia on the violation of rights of 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by the Russian side near Kerch Strait in November 2018, despite the fact that Ukraine was provided with the short term for the filing of the statement.
