The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg has received dozens of unusual complaints filed simultaneously against Ukraine, Russia, and United Kingdom amid Russian aggression in Ukraine.

The court is considering 4,226 individual complaints related to the events in Crimea or hostilities in Donbas, according to Europeiska Pravda.

As UNIAN reported earlier, in the summer of 2017, the Ukrainian authorities filed with the European Court of Human Rights almost 4,000 lawsuits related to the illegally annexed Crimea and the conflict in Donbas.

It was also reported that 3,500 suits on eastern Ukraine were related to the destruction and damage of property, access to justice, pensions, discrimination, and participation in local elections.

However, it was noted that another 150 suits concerned the disappearance of people during the conflict, the killings and kidnapping of the applicants' relatives, and bodily injuries suffered.
