120 participants of liquidation of consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant appealed to the Supreme court of Kabardino-Balkaria with a request to review the case of refusal to pay compensation for moral damage. The claims of six people will begin July 12, told the “Caucasian knot” lawyer Magomed Abubakarov.

Grounds for appeal to court became the decision of the European court of human rights (ECHR) of November 7, 2017, according to which cancellation of the decision on the compensation to the liquidators and the procedure of review of these decisions violated the rights of citizens to a fair trial.

“Chernobyl lost health, moral damage caused to them continues to the present time, and therefore they were entitled to receive compensation,” — said the lawyer.

Against the review of cases by the office of the Federal Treasury in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic. The Ministry reported, not all decisions of the ECHR can be an occasion to review judicial acts, as compensation for the “not refundable”.

In the early 2010s, compensation for moral damages had been awarded 484 of the plaintiffs. The total amount of payments amounted to 670 million rubles. Chernobyl received part of the money, but in July 2012, the Supreme court of the Republic began to cancel the decision on compensation, because the law on compensation of moral harm was accepted in 1994, but the Chernobyl disaster happened in 1986. People had to return the money.
