MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of appeals from Russia to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) reduced last year, Russian Supreme Court Chairman Vyacheslav Lebedev said on Tuesday.

Last year the court made 121 rulings regarding claims vs. Russia (the number stood at 204 in 2010).
The Russian Supreme Court Presidium reviewed 24 cases in compliance with the ECHR rulings.
