The European Court of Human Rights has issued a decision ordering the Russian Federation to stop attacks and bombing of civilian targets in Ukraine. The text of the decision is at the disposal of European Pravda.
"The court takes into account the ongoing hostilities that began on 24 February 2022 in various parts of Ukraine and considers that they pose a real and constant threat to serious violations of the convention rights of the civilian population, in particular, in accordance with articles 2, 3 and 8 of the convention", - says in the decision.
"In order to prevent such violations and in accordance with Article 39 of the Rules, the court renders, in the interests of the parties and due process of the hearing, to order the Russian government to refrain from military attacks on the civilian population and civilian objects, including residential premises, emergency vehicles and other highly protected civilian objects, such as schools and hospitals, and to immediately provide the security of medical institutions, personnel and emergency services within the territory attacked or besieged by Russian troops", - the ECHR declared.
On February 28, Ukraine applied to the ECHR with a statement on the introduction of the previous measures in accordance with Rule 39.
This rule allows the Court to issue an order to any state party to the European Convention on Human Rights during the consideration on the merits of a complaint of a violation of this convention. The order of the Court is binding.
Let us recall that the aggressors repeatedly shelled Kharkiv with Grads. Other civilian infrastructure was also damaged.
