Expert: New law on the immunity of ex-presidents is being prepared for Putin's departure


On November 5, 2020, a bill was submitted to the lower house of the Russian parliament that changes the procedure for depriving ex-presidents of Russia from immunity. Its authors are the Senator of the Federation Council Andrei Klishas and the State Duma Deputy Pavel Krasheninnikov, representing the United Russia party.


It should be noted that this legislative initiative amends the Federal Law "On guarantees to the president of the Russian Federation, who has terminated the exercise of his powers, and members of his family" and brings it into line with the amendments made to the Constitution following a referendum held this summer.

At present, the ex-president can be deprived of immunity if the Investigative Committee initiates a criminal case for committing a grave crime during the period of office. According to the proposed changes, he will now be granted immunity regardless of this.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov explained to the media that such a practice is present in many countries of the world and is not some kind of innovation.

At the same time, Russian political strategist, publicist and radio host Stanislav Belkovsky believes that the amendments to the aforementioned law indicate preparations for the possible departure of Russian leader Vladimir Putin from his post, despite the "zeroing" of the presidential terms.

Public opinion is inclined to misinterpret the newest bill on guarantees of immunity for ex-presidents of Russia. <...> This bill is the most liberal and progressive in recent years. Since (semi) clearly indicates the readiness of the President of the Russian Federation to leave, and even during his lifetime

- wrote Belkovsky in his Telegram channel.

Note that recently the Russian liberal public reacted on the initiative of Putin on life-long senatorship. According to the proposal of the head of state submitted to the State Duma, the president of Russia, who ceased to exercise his powers, becomes a senator of the Federation Council for life.

    Well, if, with impunity, for pleasure, he lives and rolls like cheese in butter, an insidious destroyer of our Great Country and an indirect killer of millions of our compatriots, a hardened scoundrel and bastard "catastrophic" Bear Tagged, then what may be the "claims" to ( by and large, who stopped the process of further defragmentation of Russia and even returned the Crimean peninsula to its fold!) to a simple "galley slave" Vladimir Putin ?! winked
    No, well, many Russians, of course, have complaints about the GDP-for example, the pension "reform" is the same, he promised not to allow it, and then, nevertheless, he "allowed it", and there will probably be a lot for "little things" ?! what
    But, as in my overseas opinion, Vladimir Vladimirovich, in general (with all his Pluses and Minuses), is the best statesman president among others in the post-Soviet space (Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko also had such a chance to become the best, but, alas , could not stand the test of power, faintheartedly became sick and went the marginal, Russophobic, "neolitvin" way!)!
    All the other post-Soviet preziks, all sorts of "EBNs" and other "multi-vector" hangers-on, quasi "best allies", will eventually be forgotten, as well as the name of the spineless Judaic "Michael Gorby" will be erased, and the name of V.V.Putin is forever among the Outstanding Personalities of our Russian World both in Russian History, as well as in World History! yes

      ... the insidious destroyer of our Great Country ...

      The greatest figure who allowed the Russians to gain independence from everything in the world. There are more legends about him, films and performances will be staged and filmed. You are simply unable to soberly assess his contribution to history. laughing

      , ... the best statesman president among others in the post-Soviet space ...

      How simple it is, to make the country very, very bad, and then, more or less, return everything to its own place, while distributing assets to the most approximate and effective ordinary Russian capitalists. A capable student of his predecessor. The set course does not lose.

      ... faintheartedly became sick and went the marginal, Russophobic, "neolitvinist" way! ...

      On this topic, many copies have been broken, it was necessary not to curse and hand over the country to the most humane oligarchs of all time? And what's next? No money, but are you looking for internal reserves and investors? Then why, the same situation exists without the Russian oligarchs-well-wishers. The country and the people are not a broom. The unnecessary was removed, it was needed - they got it again. How can Belarusians celebrate the day of independence later, and most importantly from whom, if they become part of Russia?

      ... the name of the spineless Juda "Michael Gorby" will be erased ..

      The international community will not agree with you, and neither will the Kremlin inhabitants. yes

      ... the name of V.V. Putin is already forever among the Outstanding Personalities ...

      Then why all this fuss with the laws on the inviolability of oneself and one's family, perhaps thirty generations ahead? Are they afraid that they will not appreciate the merits or benefits are not spelled out enough? Maybe instead of the law, just hold a coronation and all problems will disappear at once, for centuries. good

      Dadada ... And this law is passed just like that, and not out of fear of "gratitude" from fellow citizens.

    Does religion not allow you to leave office with the current conditions for providing guarantees?

    Adequate people are needed in the Federation Council. Uncle Vova is quite worthy of the post of senator for life

    Expert: New law on the immunity of ex-presidents is being prepared for Putin's departure

    - Personally, I have already written more than once that our guarantor may well prepare a place for himself a'la Nazarbayev in Kazakhstan ...
    - Today in Kazakhstan there is a completely faceless president; and all the reins of government and all spheres of influence are still virtually in the hands of Nazarbayev ...
    -That's the same in Russia ... -Our guarantor will simply "go into the shadows"; retaining all spheres of influence ... - and the place of the president will again be "taken" by some faceless creature a la D. Medvedev ... - or someone (or something) like that ...

    Vladimir Vladimirovich changes laws so easily. I wonder why he thinks that the one who replaces him will not be as easy to change them to suit his needs?

    The law on lifelong political immunity for former top officials of the state is absolutely normal practice in most countries of the world.

    The immunity in such laws does not apply to serious crimes against humanity, genocide, and the like.

    If the speech, in this article, is about this, then refer to the statements of some "polytechnologists" about, as it were, "the president's readiness to leave ..." are populistic and provocative.
