European Court accepts applications of Dubrovka terror act victims
The European Court for Human Rights has initiated proceedings of the complaint of 58 victims of the terror act in the Dubrovka Theatre Centre, Igor Trunov, claimants' advocate, has reported.

He added that not only Russian citizens, but also those from Ukraine, the Netherlands and Kazakhstan, filed complaints to the Strasbourg Court, the RIA "Novosti" reports.
"In response to our complaint, the European Court has informed that the respondent - the government of Russia - should have presented its objections before last June 27," Mr. Trunov added.
