There was a part in there that I thought might go against Article 2 that you quoted...
[quote=Article 13 Item 5]
The establishment and the activities of public associations, whose aims and actions are directed at forcible alteration of the fundamentals of
constitutional governance and violation of the integrity of the Russian Federation and undermining of the security of the state, the forming of armed
units, the incitement of social, racial, national and religious strife shall be prohibited.
This could be interpreted as against any freedom of assembly like we have in ours.
The main thingI can see right away, is that our Constitution was written using the language of the times, and so is theirs. The difference being,
theirs seems to be less likely a need for "interpretation."
At least this is how I see it anyway.
