Ukrainians who have suffered from Russian aggression can receive compensation ranging from € 5,000 to € 30,000. To do so, they must apply to the European Court of Human Rights within four months of the violation, but no later than 16 January 2023.
This was reported by the Ministry of Digital Transformation.
You can create an application online through the espl.com.ua system. People who have lost relatives (relatives) whose homes were destroyed, injured, illegally imprisoned, tortured or raped can count on benefits. The system simplifies the submission of the application, because it already contains all the necessary fields to fill in and tells citizens exactly what to specify.
The application can also be filled in for a relative if he/she cannot submit it on his/her own.
The system will ask you to fill in the form, download the necessary documents, print out and send the application to one of the Ukrposhta branches. When filling in, the address of the European Court of Human Rights is automatically formed, which must be pasted on the packed shipment in the office. Postal services for the sender are free.
The term of consideration of the application can be from 1 year, but the Ministry of Finance notes that the probability of receiving compensation is high.
- There is currently no single mechanism in Ukraine to compensate for the damage caused by Russian aggression to our country, its economy, and its citizens. While the government is working on it. In March, the Rada registered a bill on compensation to Ukrainians for destroyed housing.
- So far, Ukrainians can apply for damages through the electronic service "Diia". Small and micro businesses affected by the war can also apply for a grant through Action.
