MOSCOW-The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg will review more than 550 complaints from residents of eastern Ukraine on the violations of their rights during military operations by the Ukrainian military, a spokesman from Russia’s Investigative Committee said Wednesday.
“The ECHR has accepted for review 551 complaints from residents from southeastern Ukraine on the violation of their rights,” Pyotr Litvishko told journalists.
Ukraine’s southeast has been engulfed in a conflict since April 2014, when Kiev launched a military operation to suppress autonlmy supporters in the Donbass region.
Over 9,000 people have died since the start of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, according to the United Nations.
In late January, ECHR President Guido Raimondi said Ukraine, among all countries, had the most pending applications at the Strasbourg court, with almost 14,000.

The daily reports of the Special Monitoring Mission of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe have, for some weeks now , provided a grim reminder that the civil war ambitions of the governing regime in Kyiv, Ukraine have been renewed. Each daily report is detailing significant violations of the ceasefire agreement by the armed forces of Ukraine against the people of the Donbass region in the east of the country.
Kyiv co-signed a ceasefire agreement in Minsk, Belarus on February 12, 2015 but has never lived up to it.
And what to say of the silence of Western mainstream media and governments about these ongoing violations of the ceasefire?
Other daily reporting of ceasefire violations is freely available to English language readers on Novorossiya Today.
The lashing out by the Kyiv regime against Donbass is related to its political and economic meltdown, including the recent resignations of the minister of the economy and the prosecutor general of Ukraine. These officials share the Kyiv regime’s pro-Europe, pro-privatization agenda, but even they cannot stomach the corruption and self-aggrandizement of those in power in Kyiv.
