MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. The propaganda or public demonstration of symbols of organizations which collaborated with Nazis or rejected the resolutions of the Nuremberg Tribunal, has been banned in Russia by law which came into force on Wednesday.
The document amends the bill on Immortalization of the Victory of the Soviet people in World War II and the Code on administrative offenses linked to the banned acts. The minimal sanction taken against a physical entity who violates the bill is 15 days in custody; a fine worth around $23,000 (calculated according to the existing ruble exchange rate) is administered to a legal entity for similar violations, the law says.
