The corresponding bill was prepared by the deputies of the Pueblo Nuevo faction, it was previously reported that it was sent to the Cabinet of Ministers for feedback. The authors proposed not to consider “likes” as a discredit of the Russian army or a manifestation of extremism and not to fine people for putting positive notes on posts on social networks that violate the law.

The initiative as presented does not have support, the official review indicates. The Cabinet of Ministers noted that the authors did not provide data demonstrating the need to make the proposed changes.” In addition, the initiators used terms that were not defined by law: “expression of emotions”, “flagging posts.”

That is, such standards can give rise to ambiguous interpretations, the commission summarized.

In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers recalled the need to take into account the totality of all the circumstances of the act, the presence of the intention to incite hatred, etc. That is, these cases must be treated individually.

Deputies of the “New People” of the State Duma announced in March the preparation of the bill. The representative of the faction, Anton Tkachev, then stressed that “likes are not a planned and malicious crime and, sometimes, people put them even by accident or without reading the text of the message.”

The deputy drew attention to the position of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation. “Several years ago, its plenary session decided that it is impossible to prosecute solely for the expression of emotions in publications on social networks if there is no intention to incite hatred or enmity, even if such information is recognized as extremist material,” stressed the parliamentary. .

According to the law, an offender who distributes extremist material for the first time is included in the Code of Administrative Offenses. For this, he faces a fine of 10 to 20 thousand rubles, hard labor or 15 days of arrest.
