The bill on religious offence will be reworked in line with governmental proposals, said Yaroslav Nilov, a co-sponsor of the draft law, from the State Duma committee on public associations and religious organizations.

The authors pledged to remove the reference to ‘religions which are part of the nation’s historical legacy’. 

This change will help to extend the bill beyond conventional confessions like Christianity, Islam and Buddhism and include all the 26,000 religious organizations officially registered in Russia.

In his interview to Izvestia daily, Yaroslav Nilov also said he planned to introduce changes to Article 282 of the Criminal Code (on inciting hatred or enmity).
