The adoption of the bill implies criminal liability for the implementation of sanctions
The State Duma attaches great importance to the consideration of the draft law on counter-sanctions, which should protect the interests of Russia, the rights and freedoms of citizens from the US sanctions policy, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said.

"We initiated the adoption of a bill that presupposes criminal responsibility for the implementation of sanctions. Otherwise, sanctions will be enforced on the territory of the Russian Federation, which will lead to problems in the economy," the State Duma press service quoted him as saying on Twitter.

The speaker of the State Duma noted that the president and the government are given broad powers. He added that the sanctions policy primarily affects the national economy.

"Russia is always correctly and in all respects balancing the international line. And this policy, first of all, is based on respect, dialogue and non-interference in the sovereign affairs of other states," Volodin stressed.

According to the chairman of the State Duma, the US is pursuing an active sanctions policy with respect to those countries that are actively developing: it is not only Russia, but also China, Iran and other countries.
