KIEV, December 14. /TASS/. Ukraine has no legal grounds for receiving compensation from Russia for the damage caused by the conflict in the Donbas region, deputy speaker of Ukraine’s parliament Oksana Syroed said on Monday.
"We did not declare a martial law, we did not designate LPR (Luhansk People’s Republic) and DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) as terrorist organizations, we do not even have a law on designating DPR and LPR as terrorist organizations. We have no grounds whatsoever to demand compensations for the losses, for the damage sustained by Ukraine in a time of war," Syroed told the 112 Ukraine TV channel. "Today the world is gradually receding from the recognition of the fact that Russia is waging a war against Ukraine."
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk earlier said that Kiev would demand from Russia at least $1 trillion for Crimea and Donbas. "We have two key cases in the ECtHR (European Court of Human Rights). These two legal cases concern both the Russian annexation of Crimea and the Russian intervention of Donetsk and Luhansk," Yatsenyuk said, adding that the amount of the claim could be increased.
Crimea reunited with Russia after the March 2014 referendum, when 96,7% of Black Sea peninsula’s residents overwhelmingly voted for its incorporation into Russia.
