Council of Europe Commissioner Nils Muiznieks declares that "the actions of the Constitutional Court of Russia and state abuses threaten the system of enforcement of the European Convention on Human Rights."
After that, Mr. Muiznieks appealed to the Russian authorities for the adoption of a law that would effectively limit the powers of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation. According to Muiznieks, “Russia should at least change the law that gives the COP the right to prohibit the execution of court decisions in Strasbourg.”
Recall that on the eve of the chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation Valery Zorkin called on European partners for equal dialogue. At the same time, according to Zorkin, the Constitutional Court of Russia will continue to guard Russian interests in terms of their compliance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation. Valery Zorkin noted that the decision of the ECtHR to compensate former Yukos shareholders from the budget of the Russian Federation is not constitutional, since the Yukos management has taken all steps to evade taxes.
