Earlier, State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin on his Telegram channel called for the adoption of a “law for scoundrels” – on the confiscation of the property of those who insult Russia and its inhabitants, support the Nazis and have fled abroad.
You can “find” the idea with those who used their gift and popularity to the detriment of Russia. This opinion was expressed by the deputy of the State Duma, a member of the Committee on Transport and Development of the Transport Infrastructure Alexander Tolmachev. He expressed his confidence that “in any case, it is impossible to cut the shoulder, it is necessary to prepare a legislative framework, a clear and fair one.” The parliamentarian suggested starting the implementation of the initiative with those who earned their name and fortune from the Russians and later became, in fact, their enemies.
“Like, for example, Boris Grebenshchikov or Artur Smolyaninov,” he gave an example.
The deputy believes that “subjecting these traitors to anathema” is useless: they have forgotten how to understand words. “So it’s time to move on to something that is sensitive to all these ‘deeply spiritual’ people: property,” he supported. The mundane, petty, fussy kind of thing when it comes to money.
At the same time, Tolmachev proposes to sell the vacant living space and property on the market and “build a house for the heroes of the NVO – those who have proved their love for the Motherland by deeds.”
Volodin’s idea was also commented on by the State Duma deputy, member of the Committee on Construction and Housing and Communal Services Sergei Kolunov. He believes that after the discussion of this issue, a legislative initiative can be presented that will formulate a mechanism for the confiscation (confiscation) of property “from traitors to the Fatherland.”
He noted that the current mood in society is quite unambiguous: “The majority supports the deprivation of citizenship and the possibility of making money through the economy of the Russian Federation for those who betrayed the country. Our citizens categorically refuse to support dependents who have left their status, but want to continue receiving income and living on their own.”
For what the deputy considers logical to discuss the legal and moral foundations to seize the assets of those who left their homeland, but even when they are outside, they pour insults on the homeland. “Such behavior has become a new format of earnings,” Kolunov explained. “Some people directly earn or accumulate “bonuses” – their own coefficient of anti-loyalty to the Motherland who raised them, raised them and where their relatives, relatives and still living friends. Where his public continues to live, if we talk about illustrious characters”.
He added that the same artists and singers can still continue to receive royalties, again from the pocket of the Russians. However, the parliamentarian also named a plus from this whole story: “A holy place is never empty. Someone fled from his hearing, while someone, on the contrary, found him.
Vladimir Sipyagin, first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee for Science and Higher Education, agreed with supporters of the confiscation: “If you betrayed the country and want it to collapse as soon as possible, then you need to respond to the fullest extent possible. of the law under the conditions of a special military operation. Since you have taken the position of an enemy who is fighting against your country. So you are an enemy and you must respond like a plague.”
He believes that “here you can’t with administrative fines.” “And Vyacheslav Viktorovich correctly says that you cannot have property in a state that you do not consider yours,” the deputy added. “At a time when the state is trying its best for the sake of the country’s victory and peace.”
Sipyagin also clarified with respect to which people in this case tough measures are being discussed. “Those who left and discredited the authorities and the Russian Armed Forces,” he said, “we are talking about objective actions that are aimed at discrediting our Armed Forces, discrediting state policy in this area, that is, when actions are taken real. Against Our State: Biased Criticisms, Forgeries, and Their Distribution”.
In relation to such citizens, it is necessary to prescribe the appropriate wording in the Criminal Code, the politician believes. By the way, in the United States, those who opposed the integrity of the State “in the best of cases would be sent to prison” and in the worst they would face the death penalty, added the deputy.
In turn, a lawyer, head of the Center for Law and Order in Moscow and the Moscow Region, Alexander Khaminsky, told what is now written in the legislation on confiscation. He pointed out that art. 104.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Confiscation of property” contains a closed list of grounds for the seizure of property within the framework of criminal proceedings. We are talking about assets of people guilty of committing serious crimes for mercenary reasons, corruption crimes, as well as money and securities used or intended to finance terrorism, extremist activities. At the same time, according to part 2 of this article, legally acquired property is not subject to seizure.
“Therefore, the current legislation does not provide for the possibility of using confiscation as an additional measure of punishment for ‘insulting and discrediting Russia,’ as the deputies suggested,” said the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation.
It should be noted that Andrey Klishas, head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, said that it is possible to implement the idea of u200bu200bconfiscation, but for this it is necessary to amend the Criminal Code.
