Photo: TASS / Alexey Mayshev the Human Rights Council at the President of Russia prepared the expert opinion on the bill of partial decriminalization of article about extremism in which suggested to specify and expand the document. The conclusion is published on the website of HRC. So, it is offered to exclude from structure of Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation an element of "humiliation of advantage" on different group signs and to leave it only as a part of the added Article 20.3.1 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation. "Humiliation of dignity of people, including about the reason of their religious or other beliefs, undoubtedly, is reprehensible, but its public danger is comparable to the insult decriminalized a few years ago that did not cause neither protests in society, nor problems in law enforcement" — the HRC notes. The HRC also recommends to refuse a concept of hostility to "a certain social group" as the plan about protection of some vulnerable groups which are not listed directly in Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and other norms was not embodied. "And it, it is necessary to recognize, is an inevitable consequence of the fact that the term "social group" has no strictly certain value neither in the law, nor in social sciences that deprives the provision of the law of legal definiteness, so necessary for it, and generates various abuses" — note in Council. Besides, suggested to provide in HRC for Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation administrative pre-judiction after two offenses within a year, but not one. So, in Article 212.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation commission of two offenses during even half a year is supposed. "Objections from representatives of law enforcement agencies are known to us: according to them, cases of public statements are investigated more difficult and longer because of need of attraction of examination and therefore even single pre-judiction can be an essential obstacle for justice implementation. But we are sure that in most cases scientific examination of reasonable statements is not required at all: their contents is simple, addressed to the widest audience and can be perfectly understoodly quick employees, the investigation and court without the assistance of the academic experts" — noted in HRC. Earlier bills of introduction of amendments to the Criminal code and the Code of Administrative Offences (Administrative Code) were introduced on October 3 by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. According to the explanatory note to documents, during the analysis of law-enforcement practice it was revealed that criminal prosecution according to Part 1 of Article 282 not always is reasonable. On November 15 the package of bills was adopted in the first reading. The bill offers to bring to trial for extremism which was committed publicly, on the Internet, including on social networks or in media only if the citizen was brought to administrative responsibility for similar act within one year. In the current version of the bill the citizen who broke the law is brought to trial at once. Lane
