Russia has paid out ‎€200m enforcing ECHR’s decisions

In total, the ECHR registered more than 148 thousand complaints from Russia; the verdict was delivered over 4549 claims.

Russia executes "most" decisions of the European Court of Human Rights; over the past 20 years Russia has paid out 200 million euros, Deputy Minister of Justice Mikhail Galperin says in an interview with TASS.

"Some time ago, one of the human rights organizations threw in another sensational news over the fact that the European Court of Human Rights awarded 2 billion euros to the Russian applicants in the last 20 years. But 1.8 billion euros (90%) was awarded to one applicant - YUKOS, which has nothing to do with protecting the rights of ordinary citizens of Russia!" Galperin states.

Probably, he mentions the assessment of Public Verdict fund, according to which the ECHR has awarded compensation in the amount of 2 billion euros over the complaints from Russia for 20 years.

In total, the ECHR registered more than 148 thousand complaints from Russia; the verdict was delivered over 4549 complaints. Most often, Russian authorities violated the right to a fair trial (1093 complaints), the ban of torture and inhuman treatment (994 complaints), as well as the right to liberty and personal immunity (932 complaints).
