Non-enforcement of judgments by municipal unitary enterprises may give rise to State responsibility. No effective remedies against prolonged non-enforcement of judgments issued against municipal unitary enterprises undergoing liquidation proceedings are available in Russia, which constitutes a violation of Article 13 of the European Convention. Non-enforcement of judgments amounts to a violation of Article 6 and Article 1 Protocol No. 1 to the Convention.
