MOSCOW, August 13 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Interior Ministry drafted a bill banning online and print media to place guides to making explosives and explosive devices. The ministry hopes that the law should enter into force already in October, the Izvestiya daily reported on Tuesday.
Violators of new norms will face fines. Individuals should pay from 4,000 to 5,000 rubles and legal entities - from 800,000 to 1 million rubles. Moreover, activities of organizations violating the law can be suspended up to 90 days.
If such violations are found on a website, an access to the webpage containing the relevant information will be blocked. Then police may seize computers, USB flash drives, and hard disk drives or shut down the website at all. In case with print media police may seize all copies of newspapers or magazines from circulation as well as computers.
“A court will decide what measures will be imposed and what items of administrative violation will be confiscated,” the Interior Ministry’s press service told the daily.
