PACE Will Oversee Amendments to the Russian Constitution
"The Assembly invites the monitoring committee to closely monitor the process of amending the Constitution, which is currently underway in the Russian Federation, and clearly emphasizes the obligations of each member state to comply with the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights," the document says.
The draft resolution also proposes that the monitoring committee submit a full report on this subject as soon as possible. On January 23, the State Duma unanimously adopted in the first reading a draft amendment to the Constitution, introduced by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, February 11, 15 days have been set aside for preparing amendments to the second reading, which may take place.
