The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) made the unprecedented decision to not admit any complaint prepared by Ukrainian lawyer Natalia Tselovalnychenko for the consideration as European Truth reported citing the court.

It is specified that the court decided to ban Tselovalnychenko to provide aid or to help claimants to the ECHR in the present or future complaints in any way.

“The court suspended Tselovalnychenko considering her fraudulent and offensive activity, particularly, there are the obvious signs of the forgery in the number of the documents, which she filed to the court and some of the complaints were filed from the deceased people and the court was not notified about their death,” the message said.

This decision is unprecedented for the ECHR, as such a possibility is not provided by the rules of the court.

Natalia Tselovalnychenko is the lawyer from Luhansk, who works in Kyiv now.

She is well-known for her attempt to file lots of complaints to the ECHR against Ukraine due to the combat actions in Donbas. The majority of the complaints prepared with her involvement were rejected as unacceptable.

“More than a hundred people appealed to us, who stated that their buildings are destroyed due to the attacks. A person files the copy of the passport with the registration, for example, in Donetsk region and a photo of some destroyed house. What is the connection between them? It is absolutely unknown,” ECHR judge Anna Yudkovska explained.

The ECHR got about 3,800 complaints against Ukraine due to the consequences of the Russian aggression as ECHR President Guido Raimondi reported.

He noted that more than half of the complaints connected with the Russian aggression in Crimea and Donbas Conflict. Besides, the court considers five inter-state complaints of Ukraine against Russia.
