Kirill Koroteev specialises in taking cases to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and has an impressive win/loss record in cases. Previously he worked on human rights issues in different States of the former Soviet Union and taught public law. In the interview he told us how important is to see the individual behind each case and how come a societal pressure on decision-makers proves successful even in such authoritarian country as Russia.
