The Minister for Temporary Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine Vadim Chernysh called the Ukrainian enterprises owners, where external management from the ‘DPR’ and ‘LPR’ side has been entered, to appeal in the courts with claims to Russia.
‘We have legal basis to bring suits to Russia. The owners of these enterprises can appeal with claims to European Court of Human Rights’, Chernysh said in the interview to ‘Interfax-Ukraine’.
Resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe No. 2133, which ‘except recommended aspects is the norm of so-called ‘Soft law’, could become the legal basis for such claims, according to minister’s opinion.
Minister referred on the examples of similar suits, which were made in connection with Pridnestrovie and Karabakh conflicts.
‘There are the mass of won cases,in which term ‘effective control’ is used. In our case the degree of controllability of those who are there with weapons is so high from RF side, that Russia is responsible for their actions’, Chernysh told, clarifying, that he means ‘not only military, but also financial, economy, political, humanitarian and administrative control’.
‘Subject, whose rights were violated, have all the reasons to appeal in courts’, the minister is sure.
