The Russian Constitutional Court is moving from Moscow to St. Petersburg but will be able to meet in other cities, including the Russian capital. The State Duma has passed a law allowing it to do so.
A committee will be formed in Moscow to maintain contacts with state authorities.The judges will receive free housing in St. Petersburg. And off-site court sessions will be financed federally.
