- “Ukraine against Russia" (on Donbas) on human rights violations in separate districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions;

- “Ukraine against Russia” concerning the kidnapping of orphaned and disabled children on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions by the representatives of the terrorist organizations “DNR” and “LNR” and its illegal or actual displacement in Russia;

- “Ukraine against Russia” concerning Russia’s violation of the rights of Ukrainian political prisoners;

As it was reported, the ECHR punished the Ukrainian lawyer who “plied” Strasbourg with questionable complaints on Donbas.
