She stated this during a broadcast on Espreso TV.

"Today, the ECtHR hearings in the case 'Ukraine and the Netherlands v. Russia' began. The case is complex and multi-faceted, comprising four separate cases filed by Ukraine and the Netherlands in 2014, 2016, 2020, and 2022. Russia is accused of crimes in Ukraine starting from 2014. A specific part of this case involves the illegal removal of Ukrainian children to Russia since 2014, including three known groups taken by force," Vysotska explained.

According to Vysotska, the ECtHR hearings are being conducted in an open format.

"Ukraine is represented by Deputy Head of the President’s Office, Iryna Mudra, and the representative at the ECtHR, Marharyta Sokorenko. The hearings cover events from 2014 to 2022. After the hearings, the court will decide separately on the admissibility of the case concerning Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022," she said.

She also noted that the ECtHR has acknowledged that the Malaysian Boeing was shot down over Ukrainian territory controlled by Russia.

"A specific part of the case 'Ukraine and the Netherlands v. Russia' involves Russia's responsibility for the downing of the Malaysian Boeing. It’s established that since May 11, 2014, Russia controlled the occupied Ukrainian territories and is accountable for actions there. Russia is implicated in this crime. The court will not decide today; it will hear arguments and announce interim decisions later," Vysotska added.

Vysotska also mentioned a separate case regarding Russia’s occupation of Crimea.

"Hearings have already taken place, and Ukraine is awaiting the final decision, which is expected to find Russia guilty of occupying Crimea," she stressed.

  • On July 18, the European Court of Human Rights announced the verdict in the case "Russia v. Ukraine," rejecting Russia's demands in full.
  • On June 8, the lawsuit against Russia at the ECtHR was updated to include the destruction of the Kakhovka HPP.
