The European Court of Human Rights has set a date for hearings in the international case "Ukraine v. Russia" regarding the violation of human rights by the occupation authorities of Crimea.
This is stated in the press service of the court.
The case concerns Ukraine's allegations of systematic violations by the Russian Federation of the European Convention on Human Rights in Crimea, starting in February 2014.
In its decision of December 16, 2020, the ECtHR found Ukraine's application partially admissible, finding that the admissible complaints fall under the "jurisdiction" of Russia based on its effective control over Crimea as of February 27, 2014.
"After the completion of the written procedure, the head of the Court informed the parties that, in the interest of the proper administration of justice, the Court will hold a hearing on the admissibility and merits of the case, having previously scheduled it for November 8, 2023," the press service reported.
At this meeting, the ECtHR will consider the merits of the complaints that have already been found admissible, as well as consider the admissibility and merits of the case of political prisoners (No. 38334/18) and the complaint of those convicted under Article 8 of the Convention (initiated in Case No. 20958/14).
It will be recalled that the ECtHR also decided that it has jurisdiction over complaints against Russia regarding human rights violations in the territories of Eastern Ukraine, which were under the actual control of Russia.
