According to Duma speaker, Russia may take property of escaped residents

(MENAFN) Russian politicians are looking at the probability of taking the property of residents who escaped the country after the Ukraine war and are criticizing their state from abroad, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin has stated.

Talking during a parliament session on Tuesday, Volodin negated condemnation that the measure was “excessive,” claiming that it would only be used against “scoundrels who broke the law, who did harm.”

The legislation would be against people who escaped abroad and tarnish Russia, while carrying on making money in the republic, the speaker clarified. “They have real estate here, bank accounts, businesses, but at the same time they’re throwing mud at the country, wiping their feet with it,” he added.

“They usually can’t be reached with other punitive measures” as they’re outside the state, but they still “must be held accountable” for their actions, Volodin continued.

“And, of course, it’s possible to adopt changes to the legislation in order not only to stop them, but also to protect the memory of those who sacrificed their lives defending our Fatherland,” he also said.
