Andrei Klishas, a senior lawmaker, wrote on Telegram: “My colleagues from the State Duma and I have finished the work and on Monday we will introduce amendments to the Criminal Code for the implementation of restrictive measures (sanctions) imposed by foreign states on the territory of the Russian Federation.
“We look forward to prompt consideration of the amendments by the State Duma.”
Klishas did not specify how Russia would identify or punish those who implemented sanctions.
Russian lawmakers in early March passed amendments to the code making the spread of “fake” information an offence punishable by fines or jail terms. They imposed fines for public calls for sanctions against Russia.
