Those who spread fake news about the Ukraine war in Russia will be sentenced to 15 years in prison

A bill in Russia that would impose up to 15 years in prison for “spreading false information” about the war in Ukraine has been approved by the lower house of parliament, the Duma.

According to the bill, those who spread fake news about Russia’s attack on Ukraine are scheduled to be imprisoned and fined.

Those who deliberately spread fake news are expected to be sentenced to 10 years in prison, with a sentence of up to 15 years if such reports produce “significant consequences.”

Those spreading fake news are also scheduled to be fined up to 5 million rubles, but the bill must first be approved by the Federation Council and then by Russian President Vladimir Putin for it to become law.
