Russia has published a bill that makes the fight against corruption a criminal offense.

"The commission by the citizen of the Russian Federation of deliberate acts conducive to the introduction by foreign states, alliance of foreign states or international organizations of restrictive measures against Russian private and public entities, as well as those controlled by them, including by providing recommendations and conveying information that led or could lead to the introduction of restrictive measures against Russian private and public entities, as well as those controlled by them, is punishable by a fine of up to 8,095 U.S. dollars or in the amount of the salary or other income of the convicted person for a period of up to three years, or restriction of freedom for up to three years, or forced labor for up to three years, or arrest for up to six months, or deprivation of liberty for a term of up to three years with a fine of up to 3,238 U.S. dollars or in the amount of the salary or other income of the convicted person for a period of up to one year or without it."

What does it mean[/img]


The bill is intentionally written in such a way that it does not contain any legally correct wording. "Can lead" is just a concept, not a law. "Including" might mean anything. "Contributing to the introduction" is something improvable. Rather improvable anywhere except the Russian court.
Who is afraid of sanctions the most? Here are they, the authors of the bill: State Duma deputies V. Volodin, G. Zyuganov, V. Zhirinovsky, S. Neverov, S. Mironov, I, Melnikov, A. Zhukov, A. Isayev; member of the Federation Council V. Matvienko.
