ECHR completely rejects all Russia's claims against Ukraine
The European Court of Human Rights on Tuesday, July 18, announced a decision in the case of Russia v. Ukraine. The court rejected all of Russia's claims against Ukraine in their entirety.
That's according to the press release of the ECHR, Ukrinform reports.
"In its decision today the European Court of Human Rights has decided, unanimously, to: strike the application out of its list of cases," the statement reads.
It is noted that Russia's complaint was unfounded by all accounts.
The court found no grounds related to the observance of human rights, as defined by the Convention and its protocols, which would require in any case to continue the case.
It is also reported that the court sent a number of requests to Russia, which were ignored. It is noted that Russia has not participated in the process since it ceased to be a member of the Council of Europe.
Thus, the court concluded that the Russian authorities are no longer interested in continuing to consider the application it submitted in 2021.
The judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Russia v. Ukraine is written.
As Ukrinform reported, in the case of Russia v. Ukraine, the aggressor country tried to hold Ukraine responsible for the MH-17 tragedy by not closing its airspace.
Russia also claimed the alleged existence of "administrative practices" in Ukraine regarding murders, abductions, forced relocation, interference with the right to vote, restrictions on the use of the Russian language, attacks on Russian embassies and consulates, and the blocking of water supplies to Crimea.
