The State Duma passed an amnesty resolution in connection with the 60th VE-day anniversary
All in all, 435 deputies voted for this document. A total of 226 votes were needed to okay the resolution. Pavel Krasheninnikov, chairman of the lower parliament house's civil, criminal, arbitration and court-proceedings legislation committee, presented the draft amnesty resolution, noting that it applied to people who had fought in the Great Patriotic War. According to Krasheninnikov, WWII veterans, people, who had defended cities, who had taken part in intelligence and counter-espionage operations, who had served with the Soviet navy's fleets, as well as TASS and Sovinformburo war correspondents, were covered by this amnesty resolution. Former guerrillas, those having medals "For the Defense of Leningrad", as well as the residents of besieged Leningrad, will also be released. In his words, the amnesty sets no corpus delicti restrictions. Krasheninnikov mentioned some statistics as regards the number of inmates subject to be released. In his words, it is intended to release 55 persons, who had taken part in hostilities, 112 former home-front workers, 30 residents of besieged Leningrad, 20 former inmates of German concentration camps and ghettos, as well as 10 disabled persons, who did not take part in the fighting, but who had been either shell-shocked or crippled. On April 20 the State Duma also passed a resolution on the procedure for applying this amnesty document.
