Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law increasing the sentence to life imprisonment for those found guilty of high treason.
The Ria Novosti agency writes this, referring to the amendments made to Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation regarding the crime of “treason”.
Previously, the law provided for a penalty of up to 20 years in prison and the payment of a fine of up to 500,000 rubles.
Life imprisonment is also provided for those who commit the crime of espionage, providing foreigners with information that constitutes state secrets, siding with the enemy, or providing financial, logistical, consulting or other assistance against the Russian Federation.
Also, harsher punishments for those recognized as being criminally responsible for sabotage and terrorism.
Up to 20 years in prison, up from the previous 15, for those who commit acts of sabotage, while those found guilty of acts of international terrorism face a minimum sentence of 12 years in prison (previously, the sentence was 10) .
