Residents of the frontline village of Zaytsevo, which is located in the suburbs of Gorlovka, have prepared lawsuits to file with the European Court of Human Rights, demanding that Kiev compensate over 3.5 million rubles, Chair of the Public Commission for assessing economic damage caused by Ukraine Anastasia Butorkina reported.

“The public commission held a meeting in Donetsk today. Residents of four houses at Poletayeva Street, Zaytsevo, have turned to us. They intend to file lawsuits with the ECHR in order to get compensation for the damage caused during the war,” Butorkina said.

She specified that the total amount of damage makes 3 million 678 thousand 400 rubles.

The Public Commission for Assessment of Economic Damage Caused by Ukraine was formed in Donetsk in late 2019. An initiative group of DPR and LPR residents made the decision at the public meeting.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is an international judicial body, whose jurisdiction applies to all member states of the Council of Europe that have ratified the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, including all issues related to the interpretation and application of the Convention, as well as interstate cases and individuals’ complaints.
