Russia to create Eurasian Court against European Court of Human Rights

Yelena Sutormina, Chairwoman of the Public Chamber Commission on the Development of Public Diplomacy and Support for Compatriots Abroad directed the Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, and Minister of Justice Konovalov an official inquiry. She offers to consider creation of a Eurasian Court of human rights.

The reason for such a court creation is the fact, that European Court decisions have "political motivation", but not human rights priority.

The similar offering has been already stated by the Association of Asian Constitutional Courts.

One of examples of politically motivated decisions is the suits on Ukrainian citizens' human rights violations, as a result of armed conflict in Ukraine. Some of them are not adopted by the European Court.

The first consideration of the new court creation can be carried out in Beijing at the meeting of heads of the states in September 2015.
