When formulating the position of the state Duma on the draft law on decriminalization of the beating, the deputies followed the polls. They showed that almost 60% of Russians support a more lenient attitude to minor conflicts in the family.
The State Duma Council on Tuesday discussed the resonant bill, which displays the battery against close relatives from the category of criminal offences, if they are recorded for the first time. On Wednesday in plenary, the deputies will consider the document in the second reading, reminds of “TV Center”.
All amendments must correct errors and gaps in the family law. So, for example, now, even for a small quarrel in the family with violence is punishable up to two years in prison, and the beating of relatives with severe consequences threatened by only four months. According to the speaker of the Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, before accepting such a law, was conducted by the sociological research and over 50% of respondents were in favour of softening the legislation in this area.
“Really it marriage. Marriage under the bill. That sparked a debate and what is discussed. We believe that in General we need to eliminate family violence, we need to do make a family strong. All you need to do to avoid conflicts. But when there is an error it should be corrected. Families put at a disadvantage and there is pressure on the family. This is also unacceptable, so we say that these issues need to be resolved very, very balanced,” said Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.
