The proposal of the Public chamber to create an alternative to the ECHR on the basis of the BRICS is unexamined, while the promise of political engagement of the European court is the correct one, told RIA Novosti the head of the Federation Council Commission for the protection of state sovereignty and prevent interference in the internal Affairs of Russia, Chairman of the international Committee Andrey Klimov.

The public chamber of the Russian Federation plans to send the foreign Ministry’s proposal on creating alternatives to the ECHR on the basis of the BRICS (the Association consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), previously reported RIA Novosti the Chairman of Commission OP on development of public diplomacy, cultural cooperation and preservation of traditional values Elena sutormina.

«This proposal is not worked, although the message about the bias of the ECHR, that we need to rethink the interaction with it is correct,» — said Klimov.

He explained that the BRICS, in contrast to the Council of Europe is not an organization, but a format of cooperation of its member countries, and not all of them «are ready to cooperate not in economic but in political terms».

«The strength of the BRICS is that its member countries are not ready to share their sovereignty and carry out the decisions of any supranational court,» the Senator said.

According to Klimov, it would be possible «to consider the establishment of authority commensurate our legal position, but then rather in the framework of the CIS or the CSTO.»
