Putin signs law on non-compliance with ECHR decisions

"Putin" signs laws not to implement the decisions of the European Court in Moscow.

 The Kremlin said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved a bill on Moscow's non-compliance with ECHR judgments.

Under the law, Russia will not abide by the ECHR rulings adopted after March 15, when the country announced its exit from the Council of Europe, Xinhua news agency quoted the Kremlin as saying.

In addition, the ECHR will only pay out compensation in rubles and only transfer funds to Russian bank accounts.

The bill was passed by the Federation Council, or the upper house of the Russian Parliament, on June 8.
