MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma is expected to have the second reading of a package of submitted by Deputy Irina Yarovaya and senator Viktor Ozerov.
Initially, the main reading of the package was scheduled for June 22 but the Duma security committee asked to put it off to the last plenary session of this convocation of the lower house.
Emergence of this bill almost at the last call of this parliamentary season produced a resounding public effect. One of the most debated provisions of the package was a norm stipulating that the Russian citizens, who also have citizenship of another country and who commit a terrorist crime or enter into relations with a foreign security service, should be stripped of their Russian passports.
This provision was featured in the version of the bill endorsed by the Duma security committee on June 20 but the authors crossed it out later when a number of experts called into question its compliance with the Constitution.
There is also much intrigue over the final version of the provisions that make mobile telephony operators store the personal data transmitted by customers and the information on telephone connections. The security committee proposed to set the terms of six months and three years respectively, marking a definitely milder stance than the one formulated initially.
Nonetheless, Kommersant Daily writes the milder option, too, may bring the losses to participants in the market of cellular communications and to the Russian budget as such in the amounts measured in billions of rubles.
Leaders and activists of religious communities offered a mixed reaction to the proposals of the antiterrorist package that harshly regulate the missionary activities.
