Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
"We give them [facts of violation - ed.] to the European side, but more importantly, they will be used in court as part of our evidence. We are now accumulating the entire block of facts that we will be updating. Prior to the hearing, we may add new facts," Klimkin said.
He gave an example that "there were several names in the Karpiuk and Klykh case and now we are going to expand this list. That is, in principle, we will be constantly working on this."
According to the minister, first of all, this work is aimed at strengthening sanctions against the Russian Federation.
"Secondly, it comes as a complement to our lawsuit. We must demonstrate that these violations continue, we record them," Klimkin explained.
