MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russian Supreme Court Chairman Vyacheslav Lebedev said on Tuesday he is against the abolishment of the moratorium on capital punishment.
"We cannot use death penalty and have no reasons for this," Lebedev told reporters referring to a ruling of the Russian Constitutional Court.
Viktor Ivanov, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service, also said death penalty would solve no problems. "Drug addicts know they'll die but it doesn't stop them," he said.
The Russian Constitutional Court established the death penalty moratorium in 1999. It was extended in 2009.
