Russia is ready to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights has long tested the patience of Russia, applying policies double standards and making politically motivated decisions against her.

Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the Council of Europe Ivan Soltanovsky in an interview with reporters RIA News" said that Russia is considering a way out of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The Russian diplomat noted that the impetus for these actions was the deprivation of the Russian delegation of voting rights in PACE in 2014 and, as a consequence of this decision, the absence of Russian representatives in the election of judges to the ECHR.

The result was a clearly expressed anti-Russian position of the ECHR, when almost any lawsuit against Russia is satisfied almost automatically, without taking into account the arguments of the Russian side and the peculiarities of the Russian legal system.

The logical outcome of such a policy of the ECHR was the decision of the Russian leadership to consider the possibility of denunciation of the ECHR, which would ultimately lead to Russia's withdrawal from the Council of Europe.

In conclusion, it should be noted that Russia was not affected in any way by the fact that its delegation was deprived of the right to vote in PACE, and it itself stopped paying fees, from which the salaries were accrued to European officials.

It is easy to assume that Russia's withdrawal from the jurisdiction of the ECHR and the termination of membership in the Council of Europe will not have any consequences for it.

      For such crimes everywhere punished much harder than ours. In the USA they sit on an electric chair for this, in China they shoot. And only we played too much in democracy, thereby spreading in the country all this mess that is happening now.

    They do not want to take Russia for their company. This neglect is humiliating, it’s time to slam the door. No convincing case for maintaining membership is visible.

    It is high time for us to correct the mistakes of the 90s committed by the liberals of the Yeltsin era. They then broke firewood, thoughtlessly entering into all Western organizations and associations. From this, Russia has not gained anything useful for itself, but rather has lost sovereignty in making adequate and absolutely independent from the West decisions, when someone from the outside dictates and indicates what we should do, and Western laws that are alien to us prevail over Russian laws, and thereby infringe on our national interests. This is all a terrible absurdity that urgently needs to be fixed.

      So this is what we are talking about, but the beginning of all this mess and lawlessness was laid precisely under Yeltsin. He and his gang of liberals are its founder. Well, then everything only grew and grew taking such a menacing scale. People from all sides were driven into the heads: enrich yourself by any means, even by betraying and surrendering national interests, even by deceit and fraud, then all means were good, if only to knock out everything related to the former life from the human consciousness, everything that was connected with the USSR. Chubais privatization alone is worth what.

    It is visible, and how. Traveling there for government officials to hang out for taxpayer money with slopping the population of Russia (liberals do not count) and demanding compensation in euros to thieves and the rapist. I’m completely silent about travel expenses.

    In 1996, Russia joined the EU, and in the 98th it ratified all agreements. Few people know, but, in addition to the abolition of the death penalty and other tolerant crap, in the documents signed by Russia it is strictly prescribed to treat property as a sacred cow, which in no case should be touched. Despite its origin. After ratification by the State Duma of the collar, the provisions in the Criminal Code for confiscation of property were immediately removed. Membership in the EU was brought to us by the well-known oligarchs of that time, and now by some representatives of the highest authorities.
    The “common people,” as some of the kindnesses and victims concerned about Western values ​​write here, have not received anything good and will not receive from membership in the EU and all structures of Geyropa. Moreover, the decisions of these structures are exclusively recommendatory and selective. And anti-state for Russia.
    If you look at the list of EU deputies from Russia and their assistants since 1996, you will see that some have children studying in Europe, some have Real Estate in the same place, some have to get a seasonal sale with their wife. Travel, hospitality, transportation compensation, ratios and other material benefits make the EU structures very desirable for our delegates. Moreover, other business trips amount to several months with rare interruptions and there is no obligatory attendance at all meetings of EU structures. Our representatives just romp with children, wives and mistresses (s) in Europe under the guise of "establishing inter-parliamentary cooperation" at the state expense. And they wanted to spit on the suffering citizens of their country. Give at least one example of the successful pushing of pro-Russian initiatives in European structures by our deputies.
    We need to improve our judicial system, and not rely on the gay-European “justice” of the pederasts, perverts, and hated Russia bipedal and pampered burghers, Frenchmen or Dutch with Latvians.
    PS. They also paid 30 million euros a year to this aggressive anti-Russian structure. In rubles, -2.1 billion a year ...
