ECHR judgment of November 27, 2018 in the case of Popov and Others v. Russia (application No. 44560/11).
The case has successfully examined the applicants' application about decisions of domestic courts about their eviction from dormitory rooms owned by the state in which they lived with their children and their husbands, who were the applicants in the present case. The case has violated the requirements of Article 8 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
In 2011, complainants were assisted in preparing a application. Subsequently, the application was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In their application, the applicants in the case were four families (12 citizens of the Russian Federation and one citizen of Ukraine living in the city of Moscow). The applicants complained about the decisions of the domestic courts about their eviction from the dormitory rooms owned by the state in which they lived with their children and their husbands, who were the applicants in the present case.
On November 27, 2018, on the application filed by the applicants, the European Court unanimously decided that in the present case the authorities violated the requirement of Article 8 of the Convention (the right to respect for private and family life) against the applicants, and ordered the respondent Government to pay each of the four applicants 7,500 euros in respect of non-pecuniary damage.
