European Court of Human Rights : Kilin v. Russia

Abstract
Since the Russian Federation’s membership of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) in 1998, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found 116 violations by the Russian authorities of the right to freedom of expression and information as guaranteed by Article 10 ECHR. The judgment in the case of Kilin v. Russia is one of the rare judgments in which the ECtHR found that an admissible complaint did not lead to the finding of a violation of an applicant’s right to freedom of expression by the Russian authorities. In Kilin v. Russia the ECtHR agreed with the domestic courts that the applicant’s conviction for incitement to violence against non-Russian ethnicities was to be considered as necessary in a democratic society. The ECtHR however found a violation of Article 6 ECHR (right to a fair trial) because the exclusion of the press and public from the appeal hearing was not justified.
