After the Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin announced a few days ago, Russia’s intention to adopt laws not to implement the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed, on Saturday, a decision to prevent the implementation of its decisions as well.
Putin has prevented the implementation of the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights that were adopted after March 15 in his country, that is, since Russia submitted a request to withdraw from the Council of Europe.
Completely freeze their decisions
Accordingly, the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights will not be the basis for reviewing the decisions of the Russian courts, since compensation will be paid only in rubles and to accounts in Russian banks.
At the same time, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office can, until next year, pay monetary compensation to the applicant.
This came after Volodin wrote on his account in “Telegram” last week, that Moscow decided to adopt federal laws regarding the failure to implement the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights soon.
The Speaker of the Russian State Duma indicated that the State Duma deputies proposed a number of amendments for the second reading, since the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights adopted after March 15 will not be implemented, and compensation will be paid under the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, which entered into force before March 15 , in rubles only for accounts in exclusively Russian banks.
The decisions of the courts of the Russian Federation will also have supremacy over the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.
A tool in the hand of the West
It is noteworthy that Volodin considered in his publication that the European Court of Human Rights has become a political tool directed against his country in the hands of Western politicians, as he put it.
He also stressed that some of its decisions are now in direct conflict with the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the value and traditions of Russia, according to him.
