According to a complaint filed to the ECHR, Ukraine demands that Russia de-occupy Crimea and pay a UAH 1 trillion compensation for damages inflicted, First Deputy Minister of Justice of Ukraine Natalia Sevostyanova told a press conference June, 23 as cited by a QHA correspondent.

Sevostyanova drew attention to the fact that Ukraine does demand the compensation for losses.

- This is not a compensation for losses, but a compensation for damages. We demand the Crimea be de-occupied and the compensation paid for Ukraine’s inability to use the state property today, she said.

According to Sevostyanova, only over 2014 the amount of damage inflicted from the Russia’s occupation of Crimea is about one trillion hryvnia.

- This is not the final sum. Once the case against Russia is won, we will finally decide on the sum of damage caused by the aggressor, said Sevostyanova.

As QHA reported earlier, Soon Ukraine will launch a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights over Russia’s decision to ban the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People.
