Alexander Khinshtein introduced the act on the punishment of comments in social networks insulting officials and politicians
All the news headlines recently publicized that in the state Duma received the draft law on the punishment for the officials for insulting public statements. Co-author of this initiative, a member of the United Russia party Alexander Khinshtein, proposed to expand the notion of insult and formulated its proposal as follows –
“It is necessary that no one is able to offend.”
In his formulation, under the concept of “public insult” should get not only politicians and government officials, but also citizens taking the offensive in social networks under the posts about these policies.

Khinshtein explained that the Internet, as the tribune and the press is a public space. Insult in its expanse likewise offends the honor and degrading. Now this kind of is not punishable, but it incorrectly says the member.
“When a person is insulted in the video on u tube or on any page in the social network, based on the current wording of the law, it is not an insult in a public speech. But I think it’s wrong. If we believe that abuse should be punished, it should apply to all areas of our lives.”
The behavior of the authorities, mostly the same, United Russia, I think no need to talk. Have they given you to understand how to relate to ordinary Russians and put themselves “higher caste” of our society. The new law provides for administrative punishment for officials allowing public offensive remarks. In the new edition (if accepted), will be able to punish and comments on the Internet insulting our politicians.
Sort of correct, but some lawyers are already predicting a “wave” of cases of insulting the authorities, even if it is only administrative punishment. Also knowing the work of our prosecutors and police are allowed to interpret the law they will, so to speak “at its discretion”.
About how he loves the people of our officials can see numerous comments under the articles not only in social networks but also on official the Internet-editions. So, as already mentioned in the case of the amendments proposed by Alexander Khinshtein, to bring a case about the insult of the person the representative of power will be for the harsh statements in the commentary. That will knock him in the head to read what people think about him, read it, take offense and begin the statement “scribbling” about how humbled and afflicted his sensitive nature.
But I think, as it is not trying to “plug” the real Russians, and all so everyone understands how to put it simply we think. So anyone will understand that I think about it, the attitude and who believe.
