Kyiv promises to set up interagency council to sue Russia over Donbas soon
Ukraine will form an interagency coordination body soon in order to sue Russia for the damage it has inflicted on Donbas, Ukrainian Deputy Justice Minister Serhiy Petukhov said.
"This is what our colleagues at the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories are doing. I know their draft is in the final stage. It has now reached us. We are the last ministry to release all draft acts. I think this council will be created very soon," Petukhov said on Channel 5 on Monday.
The council will be tasked with coordinating all government bodies' activity related to lawsuits over the Donbas aggression, he said.
On August 1, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko proposed setting up a coordination body to sue Russia over the ruination of Donbas. Such a body was envisaged by the Donbas reintegration law approved in January of this year, which "explicitly reaffirms Ukraine's commitment to a peaceful resolution and reflects my idea of the peaceful reintegration of the occupied region," Poroshenko said.
