MOSCOW, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. A lawmaker has submitted a bill to the parliament placing restrictions on public advisement of sorcery services.
The proposed legislation is meant to protect the population and information space from the negative influence caused by astrologers, soothsayers, spiritualists and psychics who engage in various kinds of activities impacting people, their health, spiritual world and personal property, according to author of the document Mikhail Serdyuk (A Just Russia faction).
Serdyuk said he had received numerous complaints from victims of such fraudsters. "I don't deny the existence of extrasensory ability," Serdyuk said, adding that in most cases, people just boast having such ability although they don't have any. "It is fraud," he said.
"To protect the information pace from all kinds of occultism which is damaging to the people's mental and physical health, the bill proposes to introduce uniform regulations and changes to decrease the popularity of magic, sorcery, esoteric in mass media and place certain restrictions on the dissemination of such information," the lawmaker noted.
