The State Duma of the Russian Federation proposes to introduce responsibility for those who publicly deny the threat of coronavirus and urge other people to abandon protective measures. The corresponding appeal was written by the deputy Vitaly Milonov to the head of the Ministry of Justice Konstantin Chuychenko.

As the RIA NewsThe parliamentarian indicated that today on open Internet sites you can find materials that deny the danger of a new disease. In his opinion, their authors advise their audience to ignore calls for self-isolation and form a feeling of mistrust in the actions of the authorities.

Milonov considers it necessary to equate “malicious denial, incitement and sabotage” with the intentional infection of citizens with dangerous diseases. The deputy suggests introducing criminal liability for this.
