The European Court has transferred more than 12,000 cases of Ukrainians that relate to non-enforcement of decisions of Ukrainian courts to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe with a view to processing them in the framework of general measures specified in the pilot decision in the case Ivanov v. Ukraine. 

Among these cases, there are those that have been accompanied for many years by the lawyers of Golovan and Partners Law Firm. Proceeding from the fact that the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe is competent to follow the implementation of the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, this decision of the ECHR can be interpreted as a simultaneous satisfaction of the mentioned 12,000 applications.Thus, in all cases, the fact of violation by the state of Ukraine of rights and freedoms is recognized, the applicants are recognized as “victims of a systemic violation”, and that “they have the right to compensation.” 

As the managing partner of Golovan and Partners Law Firm Igor Golovan repeatedly noted, the reason for this situation is the long-term, systematic sabotage of Ukrainian officials, which blocks the implementation of the general measures provided by the ECHR decisions aimed at eliminating the possibility of the repetition of violations of rights and freedoms.
