Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has announced a number of suits in two weeks to defend Ukraine's state interests in Russian-occupied Crimea.
"In a span of two weeks, you will see a number of litigation initiatives with which Ukraine and those enterprises we will accompany will be defending Ukraine's state interests in court," he told Ukrainian TV channels about a Crimea de-occupation road map on Sunday.
In his words, the suits will be lodged with various international courts.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that the government had prepared a package of lawsuits to be lodged with international courts in connection with Russia's annexation of Crimea, "starting from the Maritime Arbitration [Association] and ending with the court in The Hague." The president explained that the lawsuits were related to a broad range of issues – from the protection of property rights to personal responsibility of certain individuals.
In particular, state-run Oschadbank, oil giant Ukrnafta and state railway company Ukrzaliznytsia have launched arbitration cases due to losses of Crimean assets.
