State Duma partially legalized corruption in Russia

The lower house of the Russian parliament on Wednesday, March 10, adopted in the first reading a bill on "accidental" corruption, which took place due to "force majeure" reasons beyond the control of the recipient. In these cases, officials can be exempted from liability.

Municipal and state officials, deputies of different levels, prosecutors, judges, senators, employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, emergency departments, FSIN, customs officers, military personnel, employees of the Accounts Chamber, election committees, Security Council, Bank are subject to this in every sense of the strange bill. Russia.

The explanatory note of the State Duma indicates that an individual involved in corruption can be relieved of responsibility due to the occurrence of "circumstances beyond his control", which in fact implies a partial legalization of corruption by Russian lawmakers.

Such circumstances may be events that could not be expected, avoided, overcome or in any way controlled. These may include fires, wars, natural disasters, epidemics, strikes, terrorist attacks, as well as prohibitive measures initiated by government agencies. At the same time, according to the press service of the State Duma, permanently repeated actions that can be predicted, as well as circumstances that depend on the will of an “accidental corrupt official,” do not fall under "accidental" corruption.

    We are waiting for the bill on the obligatory payment of the listed cohort of persons and on the abolition of the very concept of "bribe" for them. Necessarily needed by the one who is given, but the one who gives can not be canceled, in general it will be convenient. I received the money and sent the one who gave it to prison, as a result, nothing needs to be done.

    Straight surprised looking at the photo, the Duma is in full assembly, all the seats are occupied. Because CAM is on the podium (attendance is strictly required), he does not visit the Duma very often. As the operator showed the meeting room of the thought, and it is a quarter of all full and then some are asleep, and some are on the phone. The deputies were sharply dissatisfied. Now, if only close-ups or a speaker on the podium are filmed, the whole hall is no longer covered, so as not to irritate the deputies.

    Voting in Moscow: who is the monument - Dzerzhinsky or Nevsky. And it is necessary to erect a monument to the "unknown deputy".

    Thieving, but stupid for "greyhound puppies" will be taken with the words: "we do not know what we are taking."

    Nichrome did not understand ... bribes can be taken during fires and epidemics (feast during the plague) or if because of the fire did not have time to repent in time, then you can keep yourself (took a bribe and went to set fire to the forest)? Maybe Prosecutor Marzhetskiy will comment on this legal verbiage in the bill?

    Dignity can eventually turn into its opposite (Lenin). Yes, the composition of the current Federal Assembly requires renewal, a number of "professionals" are clearly tired. But not on the liberals, stinkers and ignoramuses who want to steer and negotiate with the West at the expense of the country and the people.

    Any law (decision) on the site of the right information must have buttons for and against. And if the majority of citizens press the button against, then this law should be canceled and again thought over, reformulated.
    The legislature should not only write the law, but also explain why and why.
    We choose because they promise one thing, but in fact they do another.
