The court has enforced the Cabinet’s decision to continue the blockade of Crimea

The Kiev Regional Administrative Court has refused to suspend the enforcement of the decree #1035 of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on banning the delivery of Ukrainian products from the mainland to Crimea and back for the period of consideration of a lawsuit for annulment of this document.

This decision was made on February 3.

Thus, the Court has rejected the application of a plaintiff – the representative of the Public Organization “February 20th Human Rights GroupDmitri Nezviskiy. He justified the need for such decision by stating that the enforcement of the ruling #1035, which is being challenged in court, violates the rights of Ukrainian citizens, “that would be impossible to restore unless the document is repealed”.

It is notable that human rights activists and the Crimeans, who had suffered as a result of the Cabinet’s ruling #1035, were also present at the court hearing.

Sergei Rozdobudko, the Representative of the Justice Ministry of Ukraine, made a statement against the suspension of the document and lawsuit claims overall. However, he did not provide any written objections to the Court. According to him, the office had not had time to prepare them, since they were notified of the proceedings having been opened for the case later than prescribed by the law.

Thus, for this reason the Court was unable to consider the case and postponed the hearing to February 10.
