Ukraine wants to be compensated for the losses incurred after the Russian Federation reunited with the Crimea. This was officially stated on the Fifth Presidential Channel by Deputy Justice Minister of Ukraine Natalia Sevostyanova.
For a start, Kiev intends to gather support from the European Court of Human Rights. According to Sevostyanova, Ukraine wants to arrest Russian property abroad.
According to the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, in the Crimea, more than 400 companies, and 18 gas fields were nationalized.
In addition, Sevostyanova said that the compensation for the Crimea was not the only requirement of the Ukrainian government. Ukraine has filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights, as, according to the authorities, the rights to life, liberty and security are violated on the peninsula.
Moscow has found Kiev's claims ungrounded. The head of the Russian Ministry of Justice Alexander Konovalov stated that the entry of the Crimea and the city of Sevastopol into Russia complies with international law.
Bodies of military personnel with American and Polish chevrons on uniforms were found in Avdiivka, adviser to the head of the Donetsk People's Republic said
