The European Court of Human Rights, the judicial arm of the Council of Europe, which left Russia on Wednesday, said it would drop all claims against Moscow.
“The court has decided to suspend the examination of all claims against the Russian Federation while examining the legal implications of this ruling for the work of the court,” Moscow said, referring to the ruling that left the pan. -European Rights Body.
Of the 70,000 cases before the French city of Strasbourg, 24 percent were filed by Russians, according to data released in January.
Just over 20 percent were submitted by Turkish citizens, 16% by Ukrainians and 8% by Romanians, as shown.
Moscow announced on Tuesday that it would leave the council ahead of a formal decision by the organization’s commission of ministers on Wednesday to oust Russia in the last month over Ukraine’s invasion.
