In addition, the parties paid special attention to the number of complaints sent to the ECHR by Russian citizens.

In conclusion, Tatiana Moskalkova and Linos-Alexandre Sicilianos discussed a number of tasks to improve cooperation in the field of human rights protection, the prospects for the development of legislation and the resolution of existing problems. The ECHR President noted his readiness for cooperation and exchange of experience with the Russian ombudswoman.
