Future processing of applications against the Russian Federation

Judge's gavel

The ECHR has decided over the past months several cases which set out some guiding procedural principles for dealing with cases against the Russian Federation which fall within its jurisdiction.

These rulings explain that the ECHR is competent to deal with cases concerning acts or omissions which took place before the Russian Federation ceased to be a party to the European Convention. The ECHR will appoint an ad hoc judge from among the sitting judges to examine those cases lodged against the Russian Federation within its jurisdiction and it may proceed with examination of the applications where the Russian authorities do not cooperate with it.
