Ukrainian citizens vs. Ukraine
The European Court of Human Rights has ruled in favor of Ukrainian citizens in 13 more claims against Ukraine.
In particular, the Court acknowledged the violation of rights of Simferopol dweller Viktor Gorshkov, who had been discharged from a psychiatric hospital two years later than he should have been. In another case the European Court bound Ukraine to pay 2.2 thousand euro to Dnepropetrovsk inhabitant Oleksandr Stryzhak, who had not obtained a subpoena, and 1.7 thousand euro to Oleksandr Kechko from Donetsk. These data were communicated by the informational agency “Ukrainski novyny” with reference to the press service of the Court.
17 Ukrainians have to obtain compensation for protraction of consideration of their cases in courts. The total sum of these payments is 29.9 thousand euro. The European court approved such decisions in 9 cases against Ukraine. Five of the claimants are the dwellers of Donetsk and the Donetsk region, six are Chernigiv dwellers, one person – from the Lugansk region; there are inhabitants of Khmelnitsk and Kyiv, a family from Evpatoria.
Since the beginning of 2005 the European Court issued 66 decisions against our country, 23 of them have already came into force. To compare: in 2002 only one decision was approved, in 2003 – 6 and in 2004 – 13.
