A Togliatti man has lost his bid to secure a Russian Supreme Court ruling over illegality of the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

The lawsuit filed by Dmitry Tretyakov was initially rejected in March, a court source told Interfax. After that the plaintiff appealed against this decision with the Russian Supreme Court. "On Tuesday the court threw out Tretyakov's complaint," the court official said.

According to the case files, the Togliatti man insisted on the illegality of the USSR dissolution. According to the plaintiff, many of its republics exited the USSR in breach of the then effective legislation.
