Prof. Dimitry Kochenov (EU Constitutional Law, currently on sabbatical at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University) spoke to Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty on the Constitutionality of the recent Russian law allowing the national Constitutional Court to block the application of the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. The picture is grim: the law contradicts both the spirit and the letter of the Russian constitution and, also, the spirit and the letter of the Council of Europe law. The consequences of this development for the robustness of the pan-European system of human rights protection can be as unfortunate as far-reaching.
