Sobchak’s mother refused to vote for the law on discrediting soldiers

She did not find the difference between criticism and discredit, according to the TELMENEWS.RU news agency

The State Duma passed a law, according to which the penalty for discrediting the armed forces of the Russian Federation is toughened. The responsibility for discrediting the volunteers is introduced and the threshold for the penalty is raised – it is no longer 5, but 7 years in prison. The maximum duration under the article can be up to 15 years.

Only one MP voted against the bill. It turned out to be the mother of Ksenia Sobchak, Senator of Tuva Lyudmila Narusova.

“Let’s say, on the air, a public execution without trial and investigation with a hammer – is that going to be discredited? Explain why it’s connected in one pile,” she said at the meeting.

In a comment to RIA Novosti, Narusova confirmed her vote. In her words, she did not understand the difference between criticism and discredit. Without criticism, society is unhealthy. In addition, it is proposed to introduce not responsibility for possible illegal acts of such groups, but responsibility for the words concerning these acts, she believes.

Previously, one of the drafters of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, Igor Bezrukov, also criticized the law adopted by the Federation Council on the prohibition of discrediting members of the NWO. He believes that it would be more correct to prohibit incitement to panic and that another wording should be used in the law.
