Временное применение международного договора, противоречащего национальному праву: невозможное возможно?

Provisional application of international treaties never attracted much attention of the Russian scholars or practitioners. However, recent decision of the arbitral tribunal in Yukos case under the Energy Charter Treaty raises serious concerns with regard to interpretation and application of provisionally applied treaties. Relationship between national imperative norms and norms of provisionally applied treaty without ratification by national parliament represents a problem of particular importance. The author analyzes award of the arbitral tribunal in Yukos case, different views on interpretation of article 45 (1) of the Energy Charter Treaty, recent decisions of the Russian Constitutional Court on provisional application of treaties and makes recommendations how to improve situation with provisional application of treaties in Russia.
