The Council of Europe is a completely meaningless and absolutely anti-Russian organisation

Summary of Disinformation

As soon as the Russian delegation was re-admitted to PACE, anti-Russian resolutions went one after another. Then, all these ECHR decisions against Russia! And Russia has to pay many thousands of Euros to the victims. The Council of Europe is completely meaningless and absolutely an anti-Russian organisation. Participation in PACE is not effective.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Council of Europe, undermining role of this institution. The Council of Europe is an international organisation whose stated aim is to uphold human rights, democracy and the rule of law in Europe. The Council of Europe is not "anti" any country. PACE resolutions aim at resolving existing problems and cannot be considered as steps against the country concerned.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is one of the Council of Europe’s institutions which safeguards human rights in Europe. Russia has the biggest number of cases pending in the Court. If Russia was to leave the organisation, Russian citizens would be deprived of the chance to defend their rights at the ECHR.
