Ukrainian Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko has said that Ukrainian citizens have lodged more than 2,000 individual complaints against Russia with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
The minister recalled that within the framework of the free legal aid system, it was decided to create a "big project that would help Ukrainian citizens to file individual complaints against the Russian aggressor."
"More than 2,000 individual complaints of Ukrainian citizens are now submitted to the European Court of Human Rights. We will continue to provide them with legal assistance in each of these cases in order to record in each small case a great violation of human rights by the Russian Federation and personally by the man, who is guilty of these crimes – Russian President Vladimir Putin," Petrenko said this during a Q&A session by the government in parliament.
