The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) will get the response to the request about captured Ukrainian sailors in a reasonable timeframe, as Justice Ministry of Russia reported.

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.
