Recently much has been devoted to the question of the Russian Federation recognising decisions made in international courts. This issue came to a head in relation to the Russian Federation's wish not to comply with the Ruling of the European Court of Human Rights of 31 July 2014 in the case 'OAO Neftyanaya Companiya Yukos vs. Russia' (Application No. 14902/04). The matter of the Russian Federation's inability to comply with the European Court of Human Rights' ruling became subject to consideration by the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation. (The Court was petitioned by the Justice Ministry of the Russian Federation, which argued that compliance with the European Court of Human Rights ruling was impossible in the Russian Federation as the ruling was based on an interpretation of provisions in the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and its protocols (hereafter, 'Convention') that was at variance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation in its basic, fundamental provisions).
