Homosexual propaganda bill changed due to semicolon error
The passage of a bill to ban the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations has been suspended. An error crept into the text of the law – it was found in the title
A mistake was found in the title of the bill on a complete ban on propaganda of homosexuality in Russia, according to the appeal of one of the authors of the initiative, MP Nina Ostanina (KPRF), to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin. The document was published in the electronic database of the lower house of parliament.
In connection with the “technical error in the title of the draft federal law” Ostanina asked Volodin to replace the title pages in the entire package of documents. Compared to the previous version, the title of the bill “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation Regarding the Prohibition of Information Promoting Non-Traditional Sexual Relations” has a comma that was omitted before the participial phrase.
The discussion of the question of whether it is necessary to toughen the punishment for the promotion of “non-traditional values” intensified after Volodin's proposal to completely ban it. On July 18, a group of deputies submitted a corresponding bill to the State Duma. In addition to Ostanina, who heads the committee on family, women and children, the initiative was initiated by deputies Olga Alimova and Alexei Kornienko (KPRF), Yana Lantratova and Nikolai Burlyaev (Fair Russia— Patriots— For Truth) , as well as Aleksey Zhuravlev (LDPR).
They proposed to ban the propaganda of “denial of family values and non-traditional sexual relations.” not only among children, but also among adults.
If the amendments are passed, films that are found to contain such propaganda will be banned from issuing a distribution certificate. Similar changes are planned to be made to the media law. “Negation of family values” and “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” will entail for them first a warning from Roskomnadzor, and in case of a repeated violation— cancellation of media registration.
Now the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations is prohibited among children and adolescents. Such information is allowed to be distributed, but marked 18+. Violators of the law face fines: up to 5 thousand rubles. for individuals, up to 50 thousand rubles— for officials, up to 1 million rubles. (or suspension of activities for up to 90 days)— for legal entities.

However, Ostanina believes that “15 days and a fine” as a punishment for such a violation, “not enough” and “criminal liability must be returned.”
