The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is considering two lawsuits lodged by Ukraine against Russia due to the events in Crimea and Donbas, whereas other international courts are demanding the preliminary consent of Russia, Ukrainian Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko announced.

"The ECHR currently has two lawsuits. There is a large one, which foresees violation of the rights of soldiers, journalists, and we supplemented it with the economic part of it," he told in Kyiv on Tuesday, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"The amount is UAH 1.18 trillion. These are the losses that were calculated for limiting the right to use property," he said.

Petrenko also noted that a second lawsuit at ECHR concerned the transportation of children from the area of the anti-terrorist operation (ATO).
