President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stands for strengthening the international regime of de-occupation of the Crimean peninsula. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"At a time when Russia is intensively militarizing the peninsula, restoring Soviet bases and turning Crimea into an" island of unfreedom," we should in the most effective way use the existing international legal mechanisms for turning the occupied peninsula into an unbearable burden for Moscow," he wrote.
We recall that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) brought together claims on interstate declarations of Ukraine regarding violations of the European Convention on Human Rights by Russia in two large cases - regarding Crimea and Donbas.
Earlier, Ukraine filed five lawsuits against Russia. Two of them concern the annexation of Crimea and the violation of human rights on the peninsula, three - violations in Donbas, including a lawsuit regarding the export of a group of children from the region to Russia. In May 2018, the Chamber of the ECHR transferred four cases "Ukraine vs. Russia" to the jurisdiction of the Grand Chamber.
