ST. PETERSBURG, May 11 (Itar-Tass) —— A Just Russia party is strongly against the idea of raising fines for violations in holding rallies and street processions, the leader of its faction in the State Duma, Sergei Mironov, told a news conference on Friday.
He pointed out that A Just Russia would by no means connive with extremists or wrongdoers.
“We are perfectly aware who this initiative is targeted against,” Mironov said, adding that among the authors of the bill there were some former members of his party.
“They are working for their 30 pieces of silver,” he remarked.
A group of United Russia legislators on Thursday proposed a bill raising to 1.5 million rubles the maximum fine for violating the established rules of organizing or holding rallies and demonstrations.
The secretary of the United Russia General Council’s Presidium, State Duma Deputy Speaker Sergei Neverov said the bill may be adopted during the spring session.
“There is enough time for doing that,” he said.
