    The Government has established a Commission to monitor the implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). The decision adopted at the Cabinet’s meeting was designed in a bid to allow for effective interaction among public authorities for the timely implementation of ECHR judgments and decisions.

    In addition, proper fulfillment by Ukraine of its international obligations will have a positive impact on the image of the State and will enable the country to significantly reduce the State Budget's expenditures on the implementation of ECHR decisions.

    As of March 20, 2020, the European Court had rendered 1,434 decisions finding Ukraine's violation of the provisions of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and its Protocols.

    "We have to ensure that these ECHR decisions are implemented. For this purpose, it is necessary to engage the various state authorities involved in the violation, to ensure a clear interaction of all branches of power - both legislative and executive and judiciary, and to work out appropriate decisions in order to pay compensation within defined timeframes," said Minister of Justice Denys Maliuska.
