On the official legal portal of the Russian Federation posted a new law signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, providing penalties for denying the role of the Soviet Union in World War II.
The new law provides for penalties for violations of federal law, which prohibits equating the actions of Soviet leaders, commanders and servicemen with those of Nazi generals and soldiers, and European countries during World War II.
The new law provided for penalties for denying the decisive role of the Soviet people in defeating Nazi Germany and the Soviet humanitarian mission in the liberation of European countries.
The law has three penalty frames for citizens, officials and legal entities, including fines, suspension of operations, and imprisonment. Penalties will be increased for recidivism.
