Request for an interim measure refused concerning the Russian Federation and Ukraine

Judge's gavel

The Court has decided not to grant a request for an interim measure in the case V.V.K. and Others v. Russia and Ukraine.

The case concerns ten minors who were wards of the Ukrainian State living in childcare institutions in Crimea. Their legal representatives submitted a request for an interim measure in which they argued that there was an imminent risk that the applicants could be adopted, and that this was being facilitated by the Russian authorities. The Court decided not to grant the request on the basis that the events related to the adoption of the applicants took place after the date on which the Russian Federation ceased to be a Party to the Convention.
