"The Government of Ukraine has taken a decision to send
the fourth claim to the European Court of Human Rights against the Russian
Federation. This lawsuit is "Ukraine against Russia", which includes
facts of violation of the right to justice of Oleh Sentsov and other Ukrainian citizens, who were unlawfully
convicted by the Russian court", declared Prime Minister of Ukraine
Arseniy Yatsenyuk during a Government meeting on Wednesday, August 26.
"Ukraine urges to immediately accept this claim and bring
the Russian Federation to trial for violation of international law,"
stressed the Head of Government.
He emphasized that this fourth lawsuit was to be sent by the
Justice Ministry to the European Court of Human Rights against the Russian
Federation, following today's decision of the Cabinet of Ministers.
The Prime Minister called yesterday's verdict for Oleh Sentsov and Olexandr Kolchenko "an anti-human decision of the so-called Russian
flaunty "court": "It's far from justice - it is a political reprisal
against Ukrainian citizens".
"This political revenge will not be left without attention
of the international community, as the entire global community has condemned
the illegal and inhuman sentencing of Ukrainian citizens", he highlighted.
