UK salutes Strasbourg Court's ruling

The United Kingdom salutes the judgment by the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Georgia vs. Russia, according to which Russia is responsible for murdering, torturing, and forcing citizens to move from one region to another.

"Russia must recognize and respect Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and fulfill its obligations under the 2008 ceasefire agreement," the statement by the Embassy reads.

Georgia has won the 2008 war Georgia vs. Russia case. Georgia filed a lawsuit against Russia in August of 2008, accusing it of breaching Article 8 of the Convention.
