A Russian citizen in Israel, who announced a second vote on constitutional amendments, faces criminal liability. This was announced to Interfax by the secretary of the CEC of Russia, Maya Grishina.

“The legislator criminalized double voting. In this situation, our esteemed citizen, who decided to abuse the right, faces criminal prosecution, ”she said.

The government allowed the introduction of liability for carriers of sanctions :: Business :: RBC

Products of sanctions, reminds the party of the last meeting the Deputy Prime Minister, come to Russia in several ways: they repackage as the products are not embargoed countries, imported under cover (product or hide behind packs of other permitted or documents are drawn on legal products) finally, imported products of unknown origin without accompanying documents. If the owner banned products cannot be found, to prosecute its carrier, explained the meaning of the initiative the interlocutor of RBC.

The transport company is responsible for the safety of the cargo that it carries, but is not obliged to answer for its composition, if we are not talking about the violation of the Criminal code, such as transportation of weapons or drugs, said managing partner of consulting company “Infra Projects” Alexey Bezborodov. The decision about the baggage claim takes, as a rule, the recipient or customs broker without the participation of the carrier, said Executive Director of the National Association of experts in the field of transport and logistics (SAL) Olga Fedotkin. She recalled that the transport company is liable if it is proved the fact of forgery, or complicity in the trafficking claim. But if we are talking about a bona fide transport company whose task is to deliver the cargo with necessary documents, what is the malice of the carrier, which should be punished, unclear, perplexed Fedotkin. According to SAL, this initiative will not significantly reduce the supply of sanctioned goods, as unscrupulous parties will find alternative ways. A more effective solution to the Union believes the strengthening of border control on entry to Russia, which will identify and deploy a prohibited item.

The FCS estimated the number of killed in five years of sanctions products

In 2017, the CPS has already proposed to introduce penalties for transportation, possession and sale of banned products and even has developed the corresponding bill. But the document was not accepted and responsibility for their storage and transportation aren’t currently installed, explains partner of the company “Rustam Kurmaev and partners” Dmitry Gorbunov. In the Code about administrative offences there is only article 14.2, punishable by fines for the illegal sale of banned in Russia products or goods, the sale of which is restricted by law. De facto, the only punishment for importers — seizure and destruction of the sanctions if it is found during the import, said Gorbunov.

Why I remembered about the supply of sanctions

To think about how to block a flow of products of sanctions to Russia, Vice-Premier of Victoria Abramchenko instructed in the spring: their proposals to the Ministry of agriculture and Rosselkhoznadzor had to prepare till may 22. The reason was suspicion that the country under the guise of Belarusian can be imported mushrooms from Poland. Question is interested in, after the Federation Council asked the Director General of the agricultural firm “Vyborzhets” and asked to tighten control over the import of mushrooms of the Russian-Belarusian border from Belarus began to receive a lot of cheap mushrooms at a price below the cost of Russian production.

The Ministry of agriculture has proposed to strengthen control over the supply of sanctions products on the whole territory of the Eurasian economic Union (it includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan). For example, to include measures of additional control over the products and potential supply constraints if some of the countries there is a distrust of the system of control of another state, as well as to audit the current system, reported “Vedomosti”.

Looked what they were doing, saw the Orion ship, same destination approximately, and our spacecraft “Tselina-2”, and wrote to the developers of this ship that have experience of software development. [Я предполагал, что] the developer can be civil. Not a single word that I was going to sell them some secrets, was not there. They told me the denial that “we are only citizens of Sweden”. And I calmed down on this”, — said the interlocutor of RBC.

Conflict with colleagues

In the summer of 2013 Kravtsov called to talk to the FSB and took away his computer for verification. “I was calm, because I’m not a spy, not sell secrets, any assignments not received”. During the following years he lived a normal life, continuing to work as a programmer, he says. From time to time he was invited to the FSB, and he gave an explanation about the data his computer.

In may 2014, the engineer chose to go on vacation to Greece. “I called his supervisor, who spoke to the FSB, and said that we want to visit the resort some. He says, “of Course. You have a passport with you?” I said, “In me.” “Well, and what then, go.” I said, “will You tell my boss?”. “Yes, thank you, alert. Thank you for calling, good night”. And three days before departure, the tickets had already been bought, may 27, I placed in the pavement near my house, when I went to the store. It was an act of intimidation: could I just ask, and say, “Gennady Nikolayevich, are you still go,” and there is already handcuffed. [Вместо этого] several people were attacked, choked, beaten, [погрузили] in the van, the house was searched, and this day I already was closed in Lefortovo”, — said the engineer.

The Commission, which at the request of the investigators conducted an examination on the subject of disclosure of state secrets Kravtsov, joined his former colleagues from the GRU, said the interlocutor of RBC. “[С ними] conflict working in nature. Each analyst has his own area of responsibility. When I conducted some of his experiments, revealed the sources [излучения] the areas of responsibility of other officers. Alone I was grateful. And some just said, “What are you doing on my property? Don’t tell me what to do.” And those who do not want too much bother in his career, I was very disliked. Two of these were”.

Ask questions to these experts, he was unable, although his defense tried to achieve: “I just saw their signature.” To interrogate them at the trial, the judge was not satisfied written opinion, said the engineer, “I know that many [мои сослуживцы] would just [в эту комиссию] go. Apparently [сотрудники ФСБ] examined the question, with whom I have relationships.”

“The conclusion of the investigation that sent summary was kept a state secret, made on the basis of the conflicting conclusions of experts, moreover, as in other similar cases, has been affiliated with the FSB. Attempts by the defence to call these experts for their interrogation were ignored as the investigator, and court”, — told RBC lawyer, head of “Team 29” Ivan Pavlov.

RBC sent a request to the public relations Center of the FSB.


Awaited the State-Regions table, it is decided in view of May 18 – Politics

“I hope that with territorial differentiation, they can reopen anywhere and then it will be the responsibility of the individual Regions to have the data framework I referred to before. If the infections go down, they can reopen other things too. If the infections go up, they will have to restrict And it will be easier for everyone to have responsibilities and duties. ” So Francesco Boccia, minister for regional affairs in Agorà Rai Tre answering the question whether on 18 May hairdressers, bars and restaurants may reopen in some regions.

While waiting the state-regions meeting, scheduled for today, from this morning hairdressers, bars and restaurants are open in South Tyrol, as required by the provincial law approved last week. The salons are receiving the first customers with extended hours, in some cases from 7 to 21, to dispose of the long waiting lists.

“From 18 May we reopen everything, including the beaches,” he announced in the meantime the governor of Liguria Giovanni Toti in an interview with Corriere della Sera. “I heard Minister Francesco Boccia and I believe that in the end there will be the green light – Toti continues – we ask for two things: that he will allow us to reopen the activities from 18 and that the autonomy granted by Title V will return to the Regions and that we was stolen by the Dpcm. When we got to phase 2, the government took its foot off the brake a moment late “. The restaurants will open from 18, he explains, “with INAIL’s national protocols, which are lagging behind. Otherwise with our rules. We will give the concession of free public land and more outdoor tables”. From 18 “we start the bathing season. The tourism sector employs 100 thousand people and if we travel between the Regions we could save 70% of the season. The social distance will suffice. We are experimenting with a voluntary bracelet from the sea: if you approach less than a meter vibrates. A playful thing. Who knows, maybe it becomes fashionable. For free beaches we will decide with the Municipalities: there may be stewards for moral suasion. Under the same umbrella those who live together “. For transport “we will increase the number of trains. There will be agreements for bikes. Taxis, in some cases, could replace buses, at moderate prices”.
