The Ministry of Mass Media and Communications is against the new bill that would outlaw obscenities in mass media. 

Some of the provisions are too vague, said deputy minister Alexey Volin in an interview with the Echo of Moscow radio station.

He also added that there is a law currently in place which bans obscenities in public places, which covers mass media, so the bill adopted by the national parliament in first reading a month ago is basically redundant.   

Under the draft, legal entities will face a fine of 20,000-200,000 roubles, senior staff of newspapers and TV stations – 5,000-20,000 roubles, and ordinary people will have to pay 2,000-3,000 roubles in case they swear on air.
