MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. Leader of the Just Russia political party Sergey Mironov has reiterated the need to impose capital punishment on terrorists and their accomplices in the wake of the truck rampage in Nice.
"Amid the growing worldwide terrorist threat facing civilization, now more than ever the death penalty must be meted out to those who carry out acts of terror and their accomplices," he said in a statement posted on the party’s Telegram account. "However, it is more important to pool together the efforts of the international community to survive and emerge victorious in this ruthless war."
Mironov offered his condolences to the victims’ families.
Last November, Mironov forwarded a bill on the death penalty for terrorists to the government and Russia’s Supreme Court. He suggested amending Article 205 of the Russian Criminal Code with regard to imposing the death penalty as a distinct punishment for committing, preparing, and aiding and abetting the organization of terrorist attacks. However, the Cabinet and the Supreme Court rejected the bill.
At the moment of Thursday evening’s attack, thousands were strolling along Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, leaving a festive firework display commemorating Bastille Day, when a truck rammed into the crowd at full speed.
According to the latest reports, 84 people have been killed, while several dozen sustained injuries. The Russian Foreign Ministry said a Russian woman was killed in the attack, and another Russian woman was wounded.
