The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, signed a law that equates the violation of the territorial integrity of Russia with extremism, including the alienation of a part of the territory of the Russian state.
The initiative for the introduction of the law was initiated by the State Duma deputy Pavel Krasheninikov and the member of the Council of the Russian Federation Andrej Klishas.
The draft law was prepared as part of the implementation of the adopted amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
The law more clearly presents the concept of extremist activity and stipulates that any violation of the territorial integrity of the state is considered extremism.
Clichas previously told that the law will also apply to state authorities, which means that the “transfer” of territory will be inadmissible not only at the initiative of the territory and the local population but also at the initiative of the federal authorities.
