Report: Kremlin calls for reason in cases on social network reposts
MOSCOW, Aug 14 (PRIME) -- The Kremlin counts on common sense in consideration of criminal cases opened for publications in social networks, the presidentТs press secretary Dmitry Peskov told radio station Kommersant FM on Tuesday.
УFirst, we cannot speak here generally, certainly, because every case is unique, it falls under the law or does not. We remember that there are cases that are beyond any reason. LetТs remember the last Q&A session (of President Vladimir Putin) when the president said that common sense should be kept in every case. But we cannot paint them all with the same brush,Ф Peskov said.
The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia submitted earlier a bill to the State Duma, the parliamentТs lower house, seeking to cancel criminal responsibility for reposts and likes in social networks. Internet company Mail.Ru Group, which owns the countryТs two popular networks VKontakte and Odnoklassniki, called for pardon of the accused.
The communications service said that mass media can retell content of pictures and memes from the materials of criminal cases on extremism or insult of feelings of believers if stories do not contain any signs of such offenses.
