Russian Foreign Ministry called the ECHR decision on Navalny a catastrophe


The decision taken on February 16, 2021 by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg against Russia and blogger Alexei Navalny is unprecedented and its consequences will be catastrophic. About this on February 18, 2021 on the air of the program "60 minutes" of the TV channel "Russia 1" said Maria Zakharova, director of the information and press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry.


The representative of the foreign policy department recalled that some Russian lawyers have already given their assessment of the decision adopted by the ECHR.

I think that the decision of so many of them was shocked. They are well aware that the consequences for international law will be catastrophic, since it is impossible to endlessly use legal instruments in political purposes, killing the very foundation of law

- explained Zakharova, answering the question of the co-host.

She expressed confidence that the aforementioned decision of the ECHR does not comply with any norms of international law and is not supported by any legal justification.

We remind you that the ECtHR made a decision referring to rule 39 of its own rules of procedure. He called on the Russian government to release Navalny, who on February 2 this year, the Simonovsky Court of Moscow replaced the suspended sentence in the fraud case with a real term in a colony. At the same time, the ECHR indicated that "the measure comes into force immediately."

Note that according to paragraph 4 of Art. 15 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties are an integral part of the country's legal system. Moreover, if an international treaty of the Russian Federation establishes rules other than those provided for by law, then the norms of the international document are applied.

According to the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, Navalny violated the conditions of the probation period almost 60 times.

We would also like to draw your attention to the fact that the decision of the ECHR was made without going through the appropriate appeal and cassation domestic courts to replace Navalny's sentence.

    - What's that ... - anecdote ??? - What's that ... - Hochma ??? - What's that ... - The FSIN now tells such tales ???
    - No, well, if you think about it ... you can understand that the FSIN is engaged in a very important matter ... - counting offenses ... - What a noble mission ... - And with what number of violations the FSIN begins act??? - How many of these violations need to be collected ??? -Two hundred, three hundred, five hundred ... -That's when you dial "a certain number of violations" ... -then ........................ ......... tremble ...
    - But before that ... - no, no ...

    Perhaps it's time to admit that international law is a myth. Planet Earth is still a primitive jungle and there is only one right - the right of the strong. At the right moment, the gloss of civilized gentlemen disappears like a morning fog, the snow-white smile of 32 teeth instantly turns into bared fangs.
    The masks have been dropped, the ECHR is no different from the Stockholm Arbitration.

    Catastrophe is in the brains of the West. And I do not see anything "violating human rights" in imprisonment, and at a reduced rate.

      Come on. And why are these "Zakharovs" so grasping at PACE, this very ESPC and the EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, which finances the promotion of "democracy" by various methods ....) and you can't drive them out of there with a stick? Even a fine for delayed payments in PACE was paid on the sly, against the initial puffing of the cheeks? What, you don't want someone to lose business trips there at the expense of the state, hotel accommodation, meals in restaurants, buffets, shopping and all that during sessions and meetings? This is on the one hand, but on the other, I don’t want to spoil relations with those who can warm up the current “patriots” and “fighters for Russia” in case something happens, as Gorbachev, Luzhkov (peace be upon him) and other “patriots” were warmed up there .. ..

        grabbed the PACE?

        The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution by a majority vote, in which for the first time since 2014 it called on Russia to form its own delegation.

        I think the call to return to PACE was from PACE

        What, I really don't want someone to lose business trips there at the expense of the state

        hotel accommodation, meals in restaurants, buffets, shopping

        this is the same petty flight of thought, like the degrod who ascribes some kind of palace to Putin. Bleating from the same category. If you were in their place, you would have thought about this joke first. Business trip, wow, Europe, wow. Our deputies cannot afford to travel to Europe, because they do not have visa-free travel like Ukrainians - so they are waiting for business trips - to break out of the shackles of Mordor - to save on lunch

        who can warm up current "patriots" and "fighters for Russia"

        Leshka was not warmed up. And for your sad audience he is the most fighter of the fighters for my happiness and freedom

          At one time, Sobchak did not disdain, during a presentation cruise on the Anna Karenina in September 1991, to take for himself a fee in the form of a sailor's foreign currency salary of 53 Deutschemarks a day. Apparently his deputy. - Putin is an even bigger bummer. Suffice it to recall the episodes with a fountain pen and a lump.

        Disconnecting, judging by the latest events.
        The understanding comes that structures like PACE, ECHR exist not for interaction, but exclusively for the dictatorship of the West.
        That is why Borell didn’t leave without a grain of salt.

    I see: although you personify evil, but not everything is evil in you, if you received the appropriate upbringing, you would take the right place in society. But my personal feelings should not affect the debt, you have forgotten that you have committed a number of crimes and must be punished.
