The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine announced that it had sent to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg the first part of the submissions on the merits of the application regarding violations by the Russian Federation of the European Convention on Human Rights during the illegal invasion of the sovereign territory of Ukraine.

The Ministry of Justice points out that on February 24, 2022, Russia launched a new stage of military aggression against Ukraine with the explicit goal of overthrowing its democratically elected government and the subsequent destruction of its sovereignty. The invasion was accompanied by loss of life, injury and maiming, forced displacement of the population and material damage on a scale unprecedented on the European continent since the Second World War.

It was noted that the statement of Ukraine is aimed at stopping the massive and gross violations of human rights, which were the result of military aggression by Russia.

The Ministry of Justice writes that the ECtHR “will be asked to establish that Russia is guilty of the most flagrant, serious and ongoing violations of the Convention that have ever been considered by the Court, and to award just compensation in an equally unprecedented amount.”

The document covers the period of the war from February 24 to April 7, when Russia was forced to withdraw its troops from Kyiv and other cities in northern Ukraine. The following documents, the Justice Department said in a statement, will cover more recent developments.
