Russian Law: Parliament in Action

1. The head of Russia’s Central Bank has promised to look into a proposal by an MP to issue a new banknote marking the incorporation of Crimea.
State Duma deputy Alexey Didenko has produced a sketch of a new, 10,000 rouble note to ‘have a material connection with Crimea, in our pockets and wallets, not just a spiritual connection’.
The move by the MP from the Liberal Democrats Party runs counter to the earlier statements by the Central Bank that the national economy does not need the 10,000 note.
The Central Bank has been working hard to keep inflation low despite the pressure for cheaper money.
2. The presidential human rights council has drafted a number of amendments to the Mass Media Law to ensure more safety for journalists deployed in hot spots.
Apart from special gear, reporters would have to carry an ID card of a journalist of a dangerous assignment, in line with the Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions dated August 12, 1949.
The initiative comes after two Russian journalists, a reporter and a sound engineer, were killed in a mortar attack in Ukraine.
Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin, who worked for the VGTRK network, died on June 17 in the settlement of Metallist when they were doing a report on the militia helping locals to leave the battle zone.
Russian media outlets have repeatedly complained that Russian reporters are often abused, tortured and deported from Ukraine without due reasons.
3. The State Duma has approved a bill that would ban advertising of medicines in mass media and public places.
Only exhibitions, workshops and seminars will be now exempt from this provision. Ads can appear in specialized magazines.

Some critics have argued the move would stand in the way of public outreach programs on health and safety.
