European court rules Russia violated rights of opposition leader

The European court of human rights has ruled that Russia violated the rights of the opposition leader Alexei Navalny by placing him under house arrest in 2014. Navalny was held under house arrest for months from February 2014 while he and his brother Oleg were investigated for embezzlement. The court said it was ’apparent he had been treated in that way in order to curtail his public activities’.

The UN should never interfere with something unrelated to them. The Russian Government is ruled by their people and only the people can have a say. WTF has the UN got to do with Russia. That is like an ad hominem but skillfully opposite.
