Calls to refuse vaccinations can end in frustration. For such acts, a member of the Public Chamber of the Leningrad Region, Vladimir Petrov, proposes to introduce criminal liability, reports RT.
Petrov has already sent his proposal to the Minister of Justice Konstantin Chuychenko. In the letter, he pointed out that “part of the society refuses to be vaccinated, propagating speculation about the” harm “of vaccines.” He also drew the minister’s attention to the “discouraging” news about health workers reproducing such myths, and to the fact that all this was the reason for the appearance of fake vaccination certificates on the black market. Petrov is convinced that such actions should fall under the article of the Criminal Code.
Ivan Soloviev, an honored lawyer of Russia, previously spoke about the responsibility for the purchase of fake certificates. It comes under part 3 of Article 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (acquisition, storage, transportation for the purpose of use or sale, or the use of a knowingly fake official document) and Article 236 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules). The punishment is a large fine or imprisonment.
Not so long ago, in June, Honored Doctor of Russia Tatyana Kusayko, Senator of the Federation Council, called for imprisonment for 3 years for forging a certificate, as in the case of a fake passport.
