Russia's lower chamber passed in a second reading Friday a draft law clarifying the legal definition of the term "extremism"
Russia's lower chamber passed in a second reading Friday a draft law clarifying the legal definition of the term "extremism." In line with the draft law, slander of state officials, including accusation of grave crimes, violence against officials, and hampering the work of authorities would be considered indicators of extremism. The term "extremism" also encompasses assassination attempts against statesmen and public figures, orchestrating riots, hooliganism and vandalism with ideological, political, religious, racial and ethnic motives, propaganda of racial, social, religious or ethnic superiority, and the production of corresponding printed, audio and visual materials. With 226 votes necessary to pass the bill, 429 State Duma deputies backed the draft law and will consider it in a third reading on July 8.
