Russia is #1!

Russia is the world leader . . . in producing grievances to the European Court on Human Rights. Last year, the Court received about 45,000 petitions regarding abuses from domestic courts of law, and a stunning 24% of them -- 10,583 in total -- came from Russia alone. 46 countries are members fo the ECHR, but Russian complaints make up nearly a fourth of its workload. And virtually all the complaints are legitimate. Russia is 10-352 in the 362 cases where it has been accused of human rights violations before the Court.
