Territorial Integrity Breach May Become Punishable by 10 Years in Prison, Russian Lawmaker Says

“Since the constitution now includes a direct ban on alienating any part of the Russian territory or any other actions aiming to breach the territorial integrity, we suggest amending the criminal code by a new article 280.2 ‘Breaching territorial integrity of the Russian Federation.’ A prison sentence between six and ten years is suggested as punishment,” Krashennikov said.

Calls for breaching Russia’s territorial integrity may be punished by a fine of up to 300,000 rubles ($4,128).

Repeat offence may be punished by up to 400,000 rubles in fines or up to four years in prison.
