Ukraine has no overdue debts on ECHR judgments
Ukraine has no overdue debts no the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the Ukrainian Justice Ministry has reported.
First Deputy Justice Minister Natalia Bernatska said at a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday that the Ukrainian side had paid out UAH 1.892 billion on ECHR rulings over the past decade, including UAH 1.483 billion in 2014-2017.
"This shows that during this period we managed not only to pay off all the debts at that time, and we can openly state that to date we have no overdue debts on ECHR judgments. Everything has been done on time, within three months after the decision was made," Bernatska said.
According to her, this can be called "serious progress."
She recalled that Ukraine was one of the last countries in terms of the execution of ECHR decisions.
"Many decisions were not implemented, and new ones were coming. To date, I want to inform you that we are in fifth place [in terms of the implementation of ECHR decisions] and thus we show a very positive result and we hope that this will continue in the future," Bernatska added.
