The initiators of the project are the heads of all factions led by the head of the committee on constitutional legislation, Vladimir Pligin.
Amendments to the Constitutional Law on the Constitutional Court stipulate that “at the request of the federal executive body vested with the competence to protect the interests of the Russian Federation when considering in an interstate body for the protection of human rights and freedoms, complaints filed against the Russian Federation on the basis of an international treaty, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation resolves the possibility of executing a decision of an interstate body for the protection of human rights and freedoms ”, the explanatory note says
According to Pligin, "the competence for such appeals to the Constitutional Court is vested in the President of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Russian Federation."
“If the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation adopts a resolution on the impossibility of executing a decision of an interstate body for the protection of human rights and freedoms, any actions (acts) aimed at the execution of its corresponding decision in Russia cannot be carried out (adopted),” the document says .
“The Constitution of the Russian Federation has the highest legal force and, thus, it has an undoubted priority,” said Pligin, introducing the bill. “No one will cancel this position.”
He noted that "the draft law does not cause any damage to investment activity or the protection of private property (in Russia)."
“Cases of possible non-fulfillment or reference to the assessment of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation will undoubtedly be of a single character,” the parliamentarian stressed.
