Deputies of the Yabloko faction propose to fine officials and propagandists in the amount of up to 1 million rubles or to imprison for up to five years. For citizens, the bill provides for a fine of 300 thousand rubles or three years in prison.
The parliamentary faction “Yabloko” submitted to the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg a proposal on responsibility for calls for the use of nuclear weapons. For public calls by officials or propagandists to use nuclear weapons (NW), it is proposed to fine up to 1 million rubles or imprisonment for up to five years. This is stated in a press release from the Yabloko faction.
“For citizens, the responsibility is softer – a fine of 100-300 thousand rubles, or imprisonment for up to three years,” the publication says.
According to faction leader Alexander Shishlov, this proposal was put forward against the background of growing military rhetoric, which is aimed at justifying the use of nuclear weapons. In particular, it is noted that in the Russian media and in official speeches, such calls have become more frequent.
“Hidden and overt threats of the use of nuclear weapons make it difficult to find a peaceful solution to conflicts, contribute to inciting hatred and aggression in society,” Alexander Shishlov said.
Boris Vishnevsky, deputy head of the faction, believes that calls for the use of nuclear weapons are not just irresponsible, they are madness and cannibalism.
Deputies in an explanatory note to the bill emphasized that the military doctrine on the use Nuclear weapons are the first to be incompatible both with the UN Declaration on the Prevention of Nuclear Catastrophe and with the laws of human morality.
On December 14, RosSMI published footage of the installation of an intercontinental ballistic missile of the Yars complex in the launch shaft. According to Western journalists, the demonstration of the installation of a new missile speaks of Putin's nuclear threats.
