BRUSSELS – The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that the arrest of Ukraine's former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko violated his human rights.
The European Court of Human Rights delivered this judgment at a
public hearing in Strasbourg on July 2, after considering the
opposition politician's appeal against his arrest.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
