MOSCOW, September 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Public Chamber has filed about 180 petitions in Ukrainian courts and the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) over alleged war crimes in Ukraine, Public Chamber member Georgy Fyodorov said on Wednesday.
He said the Public Chamber had gathered numerous “video and photo materials proving mass casualties among civilians in (eastern Ukrainian cities of) Donetsk and Luhansk — women, seniors and children, who were killed by Grad multiple rocket launch system fire in the shelling of residential areas”.
“We have filed about 150 petitions in Ukrainian courts and about 30 in the ECHR but ten of our petitions were turned down,” Fyodorov said. “By the end of the year, we will file in the ECHR several hundred petitions on human rights violations in Ukraine,” he added.
Court petitions were filed though Ukrainian lawyers, Fyodorov said.
