MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Russian Prosecutor-General’s Office has demanded criminal prosecution of those who authored a provocative memo for Russian tourists going to Crimea on vacation, which refers to Crimea and Sevastopol as occupied territories.
According to the memo, the holiday-makers are advised "for the sake of their own security to observe Ukrainian legislation and cross the border only with permission from Ukraine’s borderguard office in the Kherson Region."
PGO spokesperson Marina Gridneva has told that the collected evidence has been handed over to investigative bodies for a decision whether to open criminal proceedings over violations described in Part 2 of Article 280 of the Criminal Code (public calls for action aimed at violating the territorial integrity of Russia).
Those found guilty may face a punishment of up to 480 hours of public works and suspension of the right to hold certain positions or carry out certain types of activity for a period of up to three years or a prison term of up to five years.
