Events

The ECHR sent to the Government of Ukraine the Russian Government’s comments on the admissibility of the inter-State application “Ukraine v. Russia (II)”. In its comments, the RF Government states that:

  1. Application of Ukraine is inadmissible because it does not regard human rights violations, being a part of a Ukrainian campaign on accusation of the RF and shifting responsibility for violence in the eastern regions of Ukraine thereto;
  2. Orphan children and accompanying adults have voluntarily left for the territory of the Russian Federation in order to ensure their safety;
  3. The Russian Federation is not involved in the abduction of orphan children; on the contrary, it has taken all possible measures for the safe and rapid return of children to Ukraine.
