"At the Solomiansky District Court of Kyiv, we helped Anna Andriyevska, an internally displaced person and journalist from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, to get a court's decision on compensation for moral damage inflicted as a result of the Russian occupation of the territory of Ukraine. Now, Russia must compensate as much as UAH 1,043,778.47 (nearly USD 35K)," NGO Sila Prava said on its website.

NGO Sila Prava says every citizen of Ukraine has suffered from Russian aggression against Ukraine and is entitled to compensation.

The NGO's website says that more than US$3.5 billion has already been seized from the Russian Federation to ensure compensation on such claims.
