Russian Lawmakers to Punish Terrorists' Relatives

On Friday, October 25, Russian legislators unanimously passed a law forcing the relatives of terrorists to pay for the damages caused by their attacks.

      The law approved by the State Duma, the country’s lower house of parliament, was submitted by Russian President's office and includes measures to criminalize training in terrorist camps.

      According to the law, material and moral damages inflicted as a result of a terrorist attack should be compensated “by the perpetrator and his or her family members, relatives, in-laws and other people, whose lives, health and well-being are significant to him or her because of established personal relations.”

      The new legislation also increases penalties for setting up, leading or financing armed groups to up to 10 years. Participation in such groups, including those based abroad, is punishable with up to six years in jail.

      The law follows the alleged suicide bombing attack this week on a public bus in the southern city of Volgograd that claimed six lives.

      The legislation will come into effect if passed by the upper house of parliament and is signed by the President.
