Dimitry Kochenov: 'New Russian law doesn’t only violate ECHR system principles, but also Russian constitution'

17 december 2015

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 consequences of this development for the robustness of the pan-European system of human rights protection can be as unfortunate as far-reaching.
