On July 26, 2010 the European Court for human rights in Strasburg prohibited Ukraine to return 4 arrested Uzbek refugees to Uzbekistan.

The court also proposed Ukrainian government to provide comments on non-return practice until August 3, 2010. The representative of detained Uzbek citizens must file the complaint by August 9, 2010.

Ukrainian security service and interior ministry detained for refugees (looking for asylum in Ukraine) by the request of Uzbekistan. The families of other potential refugees from Uzbekistan were exposed to high pressure and persecution.

The government of Ukraine will have to give proper consideration of refugee applications and will not return them to Uzbekistan until the European Court makes appropriate decision.
