RUSSIA COULD END RELATIONS WITH THE ECHR

It is reported that the Russian government is planning to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights and end cooperation with the European Court of Human Rights. The action would result in termination of Russia’s Council of Europe membership. According to Sputnik’s news unnamed government sources, said the reason for the possible withdrawal was the fact that many of the court’s decisions ran counter to Russia’s interests. Russia has been fined by the ECHR many times because of unlawful arrests and seizure of assets. Russia’s move leads the country away from democracy and pushes more towards authoritarianism.
