MOSCOW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. News of international lawsuits lodged by Ukraine against Russia over events in Crimea has not been confirmed to Russian authorities, ITAR-TASS learnt on Wednesday.
"We have received no notification of two lawsuits from the European Court of Human Rights,” the Russian ombudsman’s office at the court in Strasbourg said.
Charges laid against Russia were announced on Tuesday on the Ukrainian government's website, quoting parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. This follows an earlier filing alleging violations of Ukrainian citizens’ rights in Crimea, but not challenging the peninsula's accession to Russia.
A source close to developments also confirmed that “there has been no information from the court lately about any new lawsuits”.
Even if these suits were filed, the European court must first decide on accepting them for consideration, which in most cases required time, the source said.
