MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The decisions of the European court of human rights (ECHR) are often politicized, one example is its April 13 ruling in the case of the terrorist attack in Beslan. This was stated by TASS, the Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.

“When we talk about the decisions of the ECHR, these decisions are often politicized. By the way, pay attention not only us, but other countries, – said the head of the lower house of the Russian Parliament. And the last case is an example of this”.

“It said the Kingdom, stressing that the authority, which is funded by the members of the Council of Europe takes decisions without taking into account the national legislation”, – noted the speaker. He is convinced that “this factor should be considered, but the ECHR is not considered”.

The Protocol on subsidiary role of the ECHR

In this regard, recalled Volodin, the state Duma adopted a decision on ratification of the Protocol No. 15 to the European Convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms of subsidiary (complementary) role of the ECHR on national legal systems. This agreement “suggests that the final issues of the judgment from the ECHR still accepts the national court, focusing on national legislation and knowledge of the situation directly in the country where the decision is taken,” he explained.
