The head of the National Anti-Corruption Committee, a member of the Human Rights Council, Kirill Kabanov proposed equating the theft of budget funds with high treason.



It is reported by RIA Novosti.

“It is nevertheless necessary to tighten criminal law, which has not yet been done. We need to introduce responsibility, assign responsibility for embezzlement in the sphere of budgetary funds, first of all, equate this with treason, give responsibility from 10 to 25 years, ”he said.

At the same time, a member of the HRC expressed the view that it is impossible to raise the issue of any early release and amnesty of corrupt officials until they have compensated the damage.

As Kabanov pointed out, at present corruption poses a threat not only to the country's economy, but also to its national security. Also, this type of crime is an "annoying domestic political factor."

Earlier, Russian Attorney General Yuri Chaika said that next year it is planned to introduce new measures in Russia to fight corruption.

On December 8, the chairman of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, said that in Russia the number of law enforcement officials and special entities accused of corruption has decreased.
