7 Most Ridiculous Bills in Russia
November 28, 2012 18:04

1. St. Petersburg: Apocalypse Bill

Andrey Gorshechnikov, MP of the municipal legislature from the Fair Russia party, moved a bill that bans any mention of apocalypse. Several MPs signed a petition to St. Petersburg’s governor Georgy Poltavchenko calling for a law to be passed against the ‘eschatological hysteria’ and apocalypse propaganda.

2. St. Petersburg: Embryo Rights Bill

United Russia MP Vitaly Milonov proposed several amendments to the Constitution that would grant embryos citizen’s rights. If they are adopted, that would automatically turn abortion into manslaughter. Fortunately, the majority of the legislature voted the proposal down.

Milonov is the deputy who earlier came up with the controversial gay propaganda ban.

3. St. Petersburg: To Hell With Magicians

Another of his proposals includes classifying services offered by magicians and sorceres as fraud and prosecute them in accordance with the Criminal Code.

4. Samara: Senior School Priests

United Russia MP and Orthodox Samara movement chairman Dmitry Sivirkin suggested schools should have a spiritual tutor – a priest teaching the fundamentals of the Orthodox belief to pupils. The Committee on Culture, Sports and Youth Policy of the Samara Regional Legislature has approved the initiative forwarding it to the regional Education Ministry which is expected to reject an idea that is not consistent with the principles of a secular society.

In October, Samara saw a rally of the workers of the local chemical plant who said they were ready to form volunteer groups to help defend Orthodox sanctuaries. They also offered to help Pussy Riot band members turn a new page in their life and become of use to society.

5. Yakutia: Prohibition Bill 

The Republic’s government moved a bill that would prohibit alcohol sale and consumption on its territory, and introduce a new soberness course into school curriculum.

6. Kazan: Beggars Bill

If the new bill penned by Prosecutor’s Office is adopted, beggars will face a 500 rouble fine or an arrest of up to five days

7. Penza: Conception Plan

At a session in the region’s Ministry of Health vice-governor Vyacheslav Satin announced an overhaul of current policies in terms of demography. He spoke in favour of putting together a birth plan, and even a conception plan. Satin promised the region will help anyone who wants to have child, including those opting for the IFV procedure.
