The majority of claims to the European court of human rights relate to human rights abuses in Crimea and the Donbass.

The European court of human rights has been 7267 complaints against Ukraine more than 4 thousand (60%) of them concerning human rights violations in Crimea and the Donbass. This was announced by the Secretary of the ECHR Roderick Liddell, reports Ukrainian Pravda.

“Just in the registry of the Court (as at the beginning of 2019) was 4369 of individual complaints about the events in the Crimea and in the East of Ukraine filed against Ukraine,” said Liddell.

The number of complaints in which the only or the second Respondent indicated Russia is much lower. “There are about 400 such complaints,” – said the Secretary of the ECHR.

It should be noted that last year the number of cases increased significantly. At the beginning of 2018 in Strasbourg, there were about 3,800 complaints against Ukraine and about 240 complaints against Russia.

The Court President, Guido Raimondi also reported that the ECHR is considering a series of cases “against Ukraine”.

“Now there are five inter-state complaint filed by Ukraine against Russia. Two of them considering the Grand chamber – in the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, three in chambers of the court,” said Raimondi.

In addition to General complaints of violations of human rights in annexed Crimea and in the territory ORDA court hears case about illegal export to Russia of the orphans in Donbass; about political prisoners and the attack on Ukrainian military ships in the Black sea.

Earlier the ECHR “banned” the Ukrainian lawyer for the dubious claims in the Donbass. This decision was taken due to the large number of lawsuits in which the Strasbourg court found a fraud and abusive activity.
