Akhmetov filed a lawsuit against Russia with the ECHR

Rinat Akhmetov filed a lawsuit against the Russian Federation with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) due to Russia's military aggression against Ukraine. According to the press service of the SCM company, the businessman asks the court to hold the aggressor country “responsible for the destruction of Ukrainian infrastructure, looting and theft of export goods.”

– Evil cannot go unpunished. Russia's crimes against Ukraine and every Ukrainian are egregious. The guilty must be punished. I – with the help of the best Ukrainian and American lawyers – filed a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights for damages. This lawsuit is one of the first international legal actions against Russia, the purpose of which is to stop the criminal activities of the Russian aggressor, the destruction of the Ukrainian economy and the plundering of Ukrainian assets, Akhmetov said.

According to SCM, the businessman's interests are represented by the international law firm Covington & Burling LLP. In addition to the lawsuit, Akhmetov asks the court to take “urgent interim measures that will prevent further blockade of Ukrainian ports, looting, theft of grain, as well as steel produced by SCM enterprises.”

– Robbery of Ukrainian export goods – in including grain and steel – has already led to an increase in the prices of these goods and an increase in the number of people who die of hunger in the world. This barbarism must be stopped and Russia must pay in full. I believe in justice and fight for it,” Akhmetov said.

He called on other businessmen who suffered from Russian aggression to go to court.

Russia attacked Ukraine on the night of February 24th. Since then, for 124 days every day, the aggressor country has been shelling peaceful Ukrainian cities with rockets, killing hundreds of people and destroying dozens of buildings. In the last two months, the most active battles have been fought in the Donetsk, Lugansk and Kherson regions. The invaders also resumed regular shelling of Nikolaev and Kharkov.
