MOSCOW, December 10 (Itar-Tass) - Any amnesty is only the first step towards normal life, so society should help those it decides to set free to re-socialize, the head of the State Duma’s Committee on security and counteraction to corruption, member of the ruling party United Russia, Irina Yarovaya, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.

The amnesty bill is timed for the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution and is generally considered not only as an act of humanism but also huge responsibility for helping those who will soon step out of the prison gates, said Yarovaya.

She stressed the idea that the amnestied should be in demand from social institutions, adding that the amnesty would be only the first step; the next one should be made by society in order to bring these people back to normal life and to deter them from committing more crimes.

Earlier on Tuesday all State Duma factions expressed their preparedness to vote for the presidential amnesty bill.
