European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) reports on Russia


Nearly 50% of Russian court decisions imposing compensation on the government are not executed within a reasonable time, if at all, and nearly 40% of cases concerning Russia declared admissible by the ECtHR relate to the non-execution of court decisions against the state.

This article provides an overview of the CEPEJ report, including its recommendations to the Russian state for appropriate reforms and remedies. To read the full article, click on the link below.
