CWN Editor's Note: The European Court of Human Rights, citing the European Convention on Human Rights (1950), ruled against Russia in a same-sex marriage case. Last year, Russia, by a decision of the Council of Europe, ceased to be a party to the convention following the invasion of Ukraine; the plaintiffs filed suit when Russia was party to the human rights treaty.
