Russia puts in punishment for maps without Crimea


Russia intends to prohibit advertising using maps without Crimea and the State Duma has been already provided with a draft amendment to the law “On advertising”.

According to Russian media, the draft amendment asserts that using the RF’s maps without Crimea and Sevastopol for advertising purposes will be interpreted as “violation of the territorial integrity of Russia”.

The authors believe that the amendments to the law aim to regulate the production and sale of printed products, educational literature and maps.

Note that public calls for actions, aimed at violating the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation, shall be punished by a fine of up to 300 thousand rubles (5 thousand US dollars) or by up to four years of imprisonment.
