KIEV, August 26. /TASS/. Ukraine’s government will lodge the fourth lawsuit with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) against Russia over the 20-year prison sentence to Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Wednesday.
"The government has approved the decision to file the fourth lawsuit against Russia regarding the violation of rights of Sentsov and other citizens," Yatsenyuk said.
"Ukraine wants the ECHR to immediately consider the lawsuit," he added.
The North Caucasus District Military Court on Tuesday found Sentsov guilty of conspiracy to commit terrorist attacks in Crimea and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.
His accomplice Alexander Kolchenko got ten years in prison.
According to investigators, Sentsov set up a terrorist group in Crimea, which set two offices on fire in Simferopol, Crimea’s capital, in the spring of 2014 and was planning to blow up a statue of Bolshevik revolution leader Vladimir Lenin.
Sentsov and Kolchenko pleaded not guilty and said the charges were politicized.
