Russia can not freeze the acceptance of the jurisdiction of the European court of human rights (ECHR), but has the right to postpone the execution of its decisions, if they contradict the national interests of the Russian Federation, said the head of the Federation Council Committee on constitutional legislation Andrey Klishas.

«The recognition of the jurisdiction of the ECHR in Russia is impossible to freeze. But there are enough legal mechanisms in order to delayed execution of decisions of the ECHR, which require the adoption of measures that do not meet the national interests», — quotes the Senator, the press service of the Federation Council.

According to him, this conclusion follows from Russia to ratify the Protocol number 15, supplementary to the preamble of the Convention on the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms by indicating the subsidiary role of the European court of human rights in relation to national legal systems and the existence of States parties «a certain margin of appreciation in applying the Convention at the national level».

«Currently, in the field of execution of decisions of the ECHR lot of purely legal points that go beyond issues related only to the protection of rights and freedoms, and affect the sovereignty of the Russian Federation», — said Klishas.

He added that on issues on which there are decisions of the ECHR, the standards adopted in Russia, «often higher» than at the international level, in particular on issues of citizenship.
