In the Duma, finally, they will seriously deal with the protection of children

Dmitry Medvedev, back in early spring, came up with an initiative to toughen punishment for crimes against minors. And now this initiative should be implemented in the relevant amendments to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

First of all, the punishment should be tougher and the term of imprisonment should be increased. Thus, the maximum term for rape of minors has been increased from 10 to 15 years, and the maximum term for the death of a child who has suffered from a rapist has been increased from 15 to 20 years. And it doesn't matter if the perpetrator was straight or gay, sexual offenses against a child of either gender are expected to be punished equally severely.

At the same time, the younger the victim of sexual violence or harassment, the more severe the punishment will be. It is also proposed to revise the principle of granting such convicts parole. They must serve at least three-quarters of their sentence.

It is important that the draft law initiated by the president will be considered by deputies as a matter of priority - after all, the terrible statistics of such crimes is growing year by year. In addition, the manufacture and distribution of child pornography is on the rise. Of course, this cannot but hurt and resonate with pain in the heart of everyone who has children.
