MOSCOW, May 15. /TASS/. In 2017, the Russian government paid out 900 mln rubles ($14.5 mln) to citizens in compliance with the decisions made by the European Court for Human Rights (ECHR), Human Rights Ombudsperson Tatyana Moskalkova said at a meeting with members of the United Russia faction in the State Duma (lower house of parliament).

"Last year, our state paid out 900 mln rubles to citizens whom the European Court for Human Rights had declared eligible for compensation in light of the violation of the principle of reasonableness during judicial proceedings," she said.

At the same time, Moskalkova stressed that "in most cases, the judicial and investigative machinery works well."

The ombudsperson added that in 2017, she had received 342 requests from State Duma members.
