MOSCOW, January 28. /TASS/. A group of parliamentarians from the Russian upper house have summited to the State Duma lower house a bill seeking administrative fines up to 300,000 rubles ($3,925) for retail sale of the so-called ‘baby-kaput’ pills terminating pregnancy.
The initiators suggest fining citizens 3,000 roubles ($39.2) to 5,000 rubles ($65.4), as well as fines of 10,000 ($131) to 30,000 rubles for officials and 200,000 ($2,617) to 300,000-ruble fines for legal entities, says a report on the State Duma’s on-line database.
Violation of the existing rules of wholesale and retail trade in medicines envisages in the bill penalties of up to 3,500 rubles ($45.7) for citizens, 10,000 to 20,000 rubles for officials and 150,000 ($1,963) to 250,000 ($3,271) for legal entities.
On Wednesday, the same group of parliamentarians led by Yelena Mizulina, chairman of the State Duma committee on family, women and children affairs, submitted amendments to the Law on Circulation of Medicines, slapping a ban on retail sale of ‘baby-kaput’ pills.
The bill also asks to "determine the list of entities having the right for their wholesale purchases," says an explanatory note to it.
The initiators note that medical institutions, both private and state, could continue offering services to terminate pregnancy, buying all necessary materials wholesale.
