Ukraine accuses Russia of 'targeted assassinations' before ECHR

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) confirmed on Tuesday Ukraine had filed a lawsuit against Russia over Moscow's alleged "targeted assassinations" of "perceived opponents" committed during the Russo-Ukrainian War.

Kiev claimed in the case documents Moscow carried out such acts "in Russia and on the territory of other states [...] outside a situation of armed conflict [between the two countries]".

Since the beginning of the Russo-Ukrainian War in 2014, Moscow has faced pressures from the international community to release ships and prisoners it had seized during armed clashes. Meanwhile, Russia called on the Western countries to urge Ukraine to respect the Minsk Protocol, signed to end the conflict in Donbass.
