Nazi Symbols and Propaganda to Be Banned in Russia

Russian senators are working on a bill which is to prohibit the glorification of Nazi crimes and the usage of any Nazi or similar symbols and gestures in the country.

      The bill is expected to define what Nazism, Nazi rehabilitation and criminals are. It will also clarify what symbols and gestures are considered Nazi “or similar” and, therefore, cannot be used within the country. Two special commissions - state nad public - will be created to evaluate the violations.

      Violation of the law will probably be punishable by a fine from 300,000 rubles ($9,500), corrective labor or up to two years in jail. The bill is planned to be submitted to the State Duma by the end of this year.

      Meanwhile, nationalists oppose the idea saying the bill is designed to pressurize the society and an opposition movement in the country.

      On November 4, when Russia celebrated the Unity Day, the Moscow police detained 25 participants of the so-called Russian March wearing Waffen-SS uniforms and chanting the Nazi slogan “Sieg Heil”.
