EP proposed criminal liability for the implementation of sanctions inside Russia

United Russia will soon prepare a proposal to introduce criminal liability for following anti-Russian sanctions within the country for companies and their leaders. This was stated by the Secretary of the General Council of the party Andrei Turchak.

According to him, adherence to Western sanctions inside Russia is an indirect evidence of their support, and it cannot be called anything other than a betrayal.

The politician said that there are cases when Russian companies, including those with state participation, refuse to work with sanctioned banks and enterprises under the pretext that they themselves risk falling under restrictions.

Turchak recalled that earlier in the Russian Federation adopted amendments on administrative and criminal liability for calls for sanctions against Russian persons, RIA Novosti reports.

State Duma Vice Speaker Pyotr Tolstoy also announced the preparation of a third anti-sanctions package of measures, noting that it would be “quite interesting.”
