    Every citizen who has become a victim of the russian aggression can receive compensation from EUR 5,000 to 30,000. For this purpose, you must have time to apply to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) within four months of the violation of their rights, but no later than January 16, 2023.

    From today, you can apply to the ECHR online through the appropriate electronic system: espl.com.ua

    The system contains a list of situations that give the right to apply to the ECHR: the death of a relative, destroyed housing, injuries, unlawful deprivation of liberty, torture, rape or enforced disappearance, etc. The system simplifies the submission of the application, because it already contains all the necessary lines to fill in and tells citizens exactly what they need to specify.

    To file a lawsuit with the ECHR, you need to fill out a form on the website, download the necessary documents, print and send the application to one of the branches of Ukrposhta.

    When filling out the application, the address of the ECHR will be automatically generated, which must be pasted on the packed item in the office. Postal services for the sender are free.

    You can also fill out an application for a relative if he/she cannot submit it himself/herself.

    The term of consideration of the application can be from one year, the probability of receiving compensation is high.

    An electronic application for forming an application to the European Court of Human Rights has been launched by the Swiss-Ukrainian EGAP Program, implemented by the East Europe Foundation, and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union.
