Yesterday, the Committee of Ministers at the Council of Europe adopted a further decision in the case of Oleksandr Volkov v Ukraine, in which they urge Ukraine to “take rapidly measures to reinstate the applicant in the post of judge at the Supreme Court without further delay”. This follows Mr Volkov and EHRAC’s Jessica Gavron speaking directly to the Committee in Strasbourg in November 2013, in order to actively pursue the implementation of this crucial judgment.
