As the text of the appeal says, the reason for this initiative was information from a number of media that the historian Oleg Sokolov, accused of the murder of his cohabitant and former student Anastasia Yeshenko, intended to write confession memoirs and earn money on the sale of these materials.

The parliamentarian believes that convicts whose crimes caused a wide public outcry and brought them “popularity” do not have the right to receive material benefits from this.

Fees for memoirs and other similar works of well-known prisoners Sukharev proposes to confiscate and send for compensation to victims of crimes.

“By April (this year. - RT ) we plan to submit to the deputies the corresponding draft law with amendments to the criminal law, which will be prepared taking into account the comments of the Prosecutor General,” the parliamentarian said in an interview with RT.

Earlier, the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia prepared a project to simplify the employment of former prisoners.
