1. Lifeline for Navalny

Two MPs from the Fair Russia party want to re-introduce amendments into the amnesty act that is supposed to free thousands of entrepreneurs out of jail or overturn their suspended sentences.


According to the draft bill to be reviewed during the autumn session, the amnesty would extend to Article 159 (fraud) and Article 160 (embezzlement) of the Criminal Code, says Izvestia daily.


Valery Gartung and Alexey Chepa say they are dissatisfied with the amnesty law that was passed on July 4 because their amendments were rejected.


If they press ahead and their draft is approved, opposition blogger Alexey Navalny would walk out a free man.

2. Pushing for More Children

The State Duma is likely to tighten the abortion law citing insufficient pro-life propaganda.

The authors of the new bill blame doctors for not giving their patients enough time to make the final choice.

They want to improve the situation by introducing financial responsibility for failure to provide enough time and information to those seeking an abortion.

According to the draft law, individuals would have to pay a fine of RUR 3,000-5,000, executives between RUR 10,000 and 50,000, and legal entities between RUR 500,000 and 1 million.

3. Back in the USSR

The national parliament is drafting a bill that would see college students work according to their chosen profession for three years after graduation.

According to the committee of the State Duma on labour, those studying at universities for free would have to sign a contract to spend three initial years of their career at positions which match their specialty.

This is most relevant for social sector jobs like teachers, doctors and engineers, says the bill’s authors.

The practice was wide-spread in the Soviet Union, with many talented graduates being sent off to remote regions, but under the current circumstances the move is very unlikely to find traction in society.
