The ministry expressed the concern that the ECHR allowed the continuation of the proceeding “underpinned by mostly links to the publications of the media and which does not contain official documents.”
Russia’s Justice Ministry confirms that Ukraine could get the official documents from Russia “through the diplomatic channels and as a result of the standard inter-state interaction.”
“The ECHR is informed that the response to the request will be given in a reasonable time frame necessary to prepare the informative document,” the ministry said.
Earlier, the ECHR obligated the Russian Federation to provide information about the captured sailors in accordance with Rule 54 of the Rules of Court. The information should have been provided until December 3. However, the Russian authorities haven’t provided the ECHR any information about the detained Ukrainian sailors.
