Russia expects de-politicized attitude to complaint against Ukraine
22 de julio de 2021, 8:11Moscow, Jul 22 (Prensa Latina) The Foreign Ministry of Russia said it expects an impartial and non-politicized attitude from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in the face of the complaint filed by Russia against Ukraine.
According to the statement, Moscow requests 'a thorough study by the Court of the materials and evidence presented by the plaintiff state'.
The Russian Foreign Ministry commented that the decision to file the complaint was long overdue and that the current situation in Ukraine left no choice but to resort to international judicial bodies.
'This is about the discrimination of the Russian-speaking population, including the loss of educational rights, the persecution of journalists and the media,' the document said.
The indictment also included 'the systematic atrocities inflicted on the residents of Donbass during the so-called anti-terrorist operation deployed by Kiev against its own population.'
It also drew attention to the consequences of the actions of the Kiev authorities on the population of the Russian border territories, including the cutting off water to Crimea.
The Russian Foreign Ministry explained that the presentation of the case before the ECHR was the result of Kiev's 'complete disregard' of international organizations and obligations, in addition to the inability of the Ukrainian judicial system to 'adequately investigate these events', and assured that all the claims in the complaint are supported by a considerable body of evidence accumulated over the years.
