The article reads that the Ukrainian judge will return to work only
next year. In addition, Christmas holidays will start in France on
Dec. 22 and the ECHR will not hold hearings during the week before
this date due to vacations of other judges.
A source in the apparatus of Ukraine’s government commissioner for
the ECHR Nazar Kulchytsky also said that the European court has warned
the Ukrainian authorities about this and specified the reason for the
absence of the judge.
“We received an official letter from Strasbourg reading that Judge Yudkivska is on a maternity leave,” the source said.
