MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian State Duma on Friday passed a bill on stricter punishment for propaganda and public demonstration of symbols of extremist and Nazi organizations in the second reading.
The bill clearly defines what symbols should be considered as “symbols of an extremist organization.” These are officially registered symbols of an organization which has been banned by court in connection with extremist activities and the court ruling on liquidating it has taken effect.
Appropriate amendments will be made to the Russian Code on administrative offences. Ordinary citizens will have to pay a fine worth up to 2,000 rubles (instead of 500-1,000 rubles). The object of administrative offence will also be confiscated. Concurrently, persons demonstrating extremist symbols may face a 15-day administrative arrest.
Sanctions for officials and legal entities vary from 1,000 to 4,000 rubles and from 10,000 to 50,000 rubles, respectively.
