News

Ivan Lishchya, Agent before the European Court of Human Rights, said that Ukraine will amend the application to the ECHR regarding released prisoners – Stanislav Klykh and Mykola Karpiuk as well as anyone released, who is ready to testify. He claimed this in his interview for LB.ua.

"Ukraine has initiated one case regarding all political prisoners. Being at the same stage as the case of servicemen, the procedural schedule is being established. It concerns five political prisoners: Emir-Usein Kuku, Stanislav Klykh, Volodymyr Balukh, Serhii Lytvynov, and Oleg Sentsov. We also filed the request to apply Rule 39. Everyone except for Emir-Usein Kuku was returned. By the way, I am surprised that Russia is trying to provide some information on this case, despite the fact that the ECHR has not delivered a judgment in it".

Ivan Lishchyna also noted that Ukraine planned to supplement the application regarding Donbass with new complaints of the persons released from “L/DPR” captivity in December 2019: "Yes, we will surely file them. This is not about new cases. This is about amending of the application regarding Donbass with additional data. The Prosecutor General's Office is collecting the necessary testimonies (of prisoners – LB.ua). We will pass them. In addition, we will amend the materials on Klykh and Karpiuk, and others ready to testify".
