​Meetings of Ministers' Deputies of the Council of Europe are confidential. We consider that the Russian Government should implement the European Court of Human Rights' ruling of July 2014. The UK has made this point on many occasions previously and will continue to press Russia to fulfil its international obligation to comply with the Court's judgement.
