Such violations concentrate around article 3, regarding the prohibition of tortures; article 5, the right to freedom and security; article 6, the right to a fair trial and an appropriate length of time for the proceedings; article 13, the right to an effective appeal; finally, to Additional Protocol 1 about the protection of ownership.

Fiorenzo Stolfi, Minister of Foreign Affairs of San Marino and president on duty of the Committee of the Ministers of the Council of Europe, also spoke about the enforcement of Protocol 14 and stated that "priority number one is to guarantee the effectiveness of the system of the European Convention on Human Rights", which means urging Russia to give it its go-ahead.” ” ” “
