The European Court of Human Rights has published a decision in the case “Georgia v. Russia” connected with the 2008 war.

According to the local bureau Report, the Strasbourg court granted Georgia’s claims that Russia violated several European Convention articles during the August war.

According to the document, Russia carried out ethnic cleansing against Georgians during the war in August 2008.

The Court also supported Georgia’s position, saying that Russia was responsible for the torture of Georgian prisoners of war and civilians, inhumane treatment, violation of the civilian population’s rights and freedoms, and the refusal to investigate the killing of Georgian citizens during the war.
