The Supreme Court of Russia has sustained the lawsuit of the Russian Justice Ministry on liquidation of the Union of Ukrainians of Russia. The decision was announced by the Supreme Court Judge Nikolai Romenenko.

"Having listened to the explanations of the Justice Ministry and the Union, having studied the materials of the case and having listened to the debates, the Supreme Court decides to sustain the appeal of the Justice Ministry and to liquidate the public organization the Union of Ukrainians of Russia, excluding it from the list of legal entities," Romenenko said.

The court hearings were held in open mode, and the side can appeal the decision within a month. The defense team of the Union announced it disagrees with the decision due to absence of evidence of guilt and will appeal it within the time established by the law.

As a reminder, On January 20, 2011 Russian Justice Ministry appealed to the Supreme Court with a demand to liquidate the Union. The appeal said that for the period of August 19-29, 2009 the Justice Ministry held an inspection, which proved that the Union did not observe the legislation and its own regulations.
