Drills for soldeirs in non-recognized Transnistria

The European Court of Human Rights ordered Russia to pay $53,8 thousand for violation of the right to life in non-recognized Transnistria, as Ukrinform reported referring to rights-based association Promo-LEX.

“Oleksandr Stomaga’s mother will get the compensation. Stomaga was forcefully called for service to the unit of the non-recognized Transnistria. He was murdered under uncertain circumstances,” the message says.

It was also noted that the European Court of Human Rights rejected the request of the Russian government to review the decision on this case. A panel of five judges from ECHR was considering Russia’s motion.

The decision came into force on February 4, 2019.

Oleksandr Postika, the director of "Promo-LEX,” noted that due to the fact that the “decision of one panel is final, Russia must strictly comply with the ECHR verdict as of September 18, 2018.”

After Stomaga was killed under uncertain circumstances, Russian authorities did not reply to his mother’s requests, while the Moldovan government suspended the case stating there was no suspect.

It should be noted that this is not the only successful case against Russia related to call in Transnistria. Earlier, ECHR found Russia guilty of the death of a Ukrainian Yevhen Kolobychko, who served in the army of the non-recognized Transnistria. Russia had to pay $22,5 thousand compensation to his father.
