Peace in Chechnya depends on the success of the democracy building process in Russia IV. For the (too few) sustainably en-gaged Russian citizens the Russian CoE membership is of great help: :  IV. For the (too few) sustainably en-gaged Russian citizens the Russian CoE membership is of great help: The European Court of Human Rights ruled until now nearly only in the interest of the Russian citizens and not of the Russian Courts The PACE delivered in it’s Parliamentarian Monitoring Process one of the most complete critical analyses of Russia’s HR deficits The PACE is the only official body who brought light and public attention to Chechnya since 1996 V.
