Protection of interests of the Ukrainian state in courts is a matter of national security, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Thursday, December 11 while presenting in Parliament the Government's Action Program.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk reminded that Ukraine had filed against the Russian Federation two claims to the European Court of Human Rights, "Russia as an aggressor country is obliged to compensate Ukraine for the damages caused by the illegal annexation of Crimea and Russian military aggression".

He informed that the total volume of the claim today reaches over USD 1 trillion.

Apart from that, Ukraine has launched a procedure of filing a claim against the Russian Federation to the International Court of Justice containing that the Russian Federation violated the International Convention for the suppression of the financing of terrorism, "Russia is financing terrorism, and she must be liable for that. So, she will be brought before the International Court of Justice".
