The State Duma in October will consider a new law on responsibility for the rape of minors. Regardless of age, the punishment can be up to 20 years in prison or life imprisonment.

As they write "News”, The authors of the law believe that the current punishment is too lenient for pedophiles, especially when it comes to victims over 14 years old. The age difference shouldn't be the deciding factor.

Now the maximum punishment under articles "Rape" and "Violent acts of a sexual nature" is a maximum of 15 years to life imprisonment. But responsibility comes only if the victim is under 14 years old, and the offender has had a previous conviction for such acts.
