ALERT: Putin Just Signed A Bill That’s A Total Game Changer For The Entire World
Standing up for the sovereignty his own country…
While President Obama looks for ways to impose global rules and regulations on the United States — including climate change “justice” — there is one world leader who has apparently had enough with the findings of international courts. This president says his country can just say “no” to such rulings deemed incompatible with the laws of his land.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed legislation that provides his country with the right to decide for itself whether or not the decrees of international human rights courts should be carried out within Russia’s borders.
Putin has taken a strong stand in defense of Russia’s constitution by proclaiming that the Russian Constitutional Court can now pronounce any ruling “non-executable” if it doesn’t comply with his country’s laws.
The new law comes in the wake of a costly verdict from the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) ordering the Russian government to pay $2 billion in penalties to shareholders of Yukos oil company. The owner of Yukos, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, served 10 years in jail, beginning in 2003, for what the ECHR claimed at the time was a politically-motivated sentence, although they later changed their stance.
In 2004, Khodorkovsky was the wealthiest man in Russia and one of the richest people in the world, ranked 16th on Forbes list of billionaires. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in the mid-1990s, he accumulated considerable wealth through obtaining control of a series of Siberian oil fields unified under the name Yukos.
