The Legal Dialogue Grant Programme has made it possible for Russian lawyers Yana Zagorskaya and Artyom Lapov to attend a hearing at the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. The Grand Chamber deliberated whether taking and sharing photographs of one’s ballot paper was acceptable and whether it could affect the electoral process.
