Abstract
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) delivered its judgment in Sinkova v. Ukraine, concerning a conviction for a performance-art protest at a war memorial, which had been filmed and published online. The performing artist was prosecuted and convicted for “desecration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier”. The ECtHR held, by four votes to three, that the interference by the Ukrainian authorities with the protestor’s right to freedom of expression did not amount to a violation of Article 10 ECHR.
