“In the coming days we will give further consideration of our judicial case on violations Russia and its obligations under the Convention on the law of the sea,” – said Klimkin during a meeting with heads of Ukrainian embassies, reports “RIA Novosti Ukraine”.

At the end of last week the official representative of the foreign Ministry of Russia Maria Zakharova said that Moscow failed to agree with Kiev on the UN Convention on the law of the sea.

“Questions were asked to the Russian side only in order to get a formal occasion for the Declaration of preliminary consultations with Russia concerning sovereign rights in the waters around the Crimea”, – she said.

At the end of June the first Deputy Minister of justice of Ukraine Natalia Sevostianova said that Kiev will give the sixth lawsuit against Russia in the European court of human rights (ECHR) because of the events in the Donbass.

A few months earlier the military Prosecutor’s office of Ukraine reported that the damage from the loss of the Crimea amounted to one trillion hryvnia, or 2.6 trillion rubles.
