Asters, working pro bono with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, has advised the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine on the inter-state proceedings being brought by Ukraine against the Russian Federation before the European Court of Human Rights.

According to Asters, "on June 23, 2022, the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine acting on behalf of the State of Ukraine filed the first part of Ukraine’s substantive submissions in its application before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, to address the damages caused by the violations committed by the Russian Federation over the first phase of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine."

"The proceedings concern, inter alia, Ukraine's claims for monetary compensation by the Russian Federation payable to all individual parties injured by a multitude of violations of the most fundamental rights protected by the Convention, including violations of the right to life, the prohibition on torture, the right to liberty and security, the right to respect for private and family life, the rights to freedom of thought and expression, and the right to protection of property," the firm announced. "The damage resulting from Russia's illegal invasion of the sovereign territory of Ukraine only over the first phase commencing on February 24, 2022, until April 7, 2022, for which Ukraine will seek redress amounts to at least USD 80 billion."

The Asters team is led by Co-Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy and Partner Markiyan Kliuchkovskyi and includes Counsels Oksana Legka and Oleksandr Volkov, Associate Nataliia Savula, and Junior Associates Valeriia Yakimova and Oleksandr Lutsenko.
