January 14, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) ruled on Ukraine's lawsuits against the Russian Federation regarding human rights violations in the temporarily occupied Crimea. The court found Ukraine's case against Russia partially admissible and proceeded to consider the case on the merits. This was reported by the court’s press service.
"’Ukraine v. Russia (Crimea)’- complaints of a number of human rights violations are considered partially acceptable," the statement said.
Ukraine’s Justice Minister Denys Malyuska noted that the case had several important aspects. In particular, he said: "We are gradually proving the facts of aggression and criminal behavior of the Russian Federation on the territory of our state."
It is worth noting that this case has been pending before the European Court of Human Rights since March 2014. The last hearing of this case took place in September 2019.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine intends to invite Russia to participate in negotiations on the de-occupation of Crimea.
