SOCHI, May 14. /TASS/. The Kremlin will formulate its position on the draft law envisaging criminal liability for complying with US sanctions in Russia after the document is debated in the Russian parliament, acting presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"At first, it [the bill] will be discussed in the parliament, after which it will be possible to speak about formulating some position," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"I wouldn’t rush ahead," Peskov said.
Russian lawmakers intend to introduce both administrative and criminal liability for complying with anti-Russian sanctions on the territory of Russia.
Administrative liability will envisage penalties, first and foremost, for private individuals, if they stood behind decisions, for example, on denying concluding a deal or providing a loan to a company slapped with sanctions.
Criminal liability will be mostly stipulated for corporate entities.
