“We agreed with our colleagues in the State Duma to amend our bill on a “divorce” from the ECHR, that according to the decisions that have already been made with respect to Russia (as of the date of withdrawal from the Council of Europe), payments will be made only in rubles, while it will be prohibited to make payments to accounts in unfriendly countries,” Klishas wrote on Telegram.

According to him, the relevant amendments will be considered in the second reading.

Earlier, a group of senators and deputies from the United Russia faction submitted a draft law to the State Duma, which provides that the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) issued after March 16 will not be enforced in Russia.

According to the document, until January 1, 2023, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office can pay monetary compensation to the applicant under the ECtHR rulings, which were issued before March 16.
