Kiev aggression victims in the Lugansk People’s Republic have filed more than 3,000 statements of claim with the International Court of Human rights, LPR First Deputy Foreign Minister Anna Soroka said at the online conference “The Seared Memory of Donbass: Ukrainian army’s war crimes and new information on massacres of civilians.”

“We’ve sent a large amount - more than 3,000 - claims both from the DPR (Donetsk People’s Republic) and the LPR to the ECHR, and a huge amount of information went to the International Criminal Court,” Soroka said. “We have a confirmation that this information has been accepted for review and entered into the body of evidence.”

Earlier, LPR Prosecutor General’s Office spokeswoman Inna Semyonova said that PGO personnel had helped Ukrainian army aggression victims draw 895 complaints to the European Court of Human Rights.

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. Conflict settlement relies on the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, signed on February 12, 2015 in the Belarussian capital by the Contact Group members and coordinated by the Normandy Four heads of states (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine). The document provides for ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons from the contact line. *i*s
