The State Duma submitted a bill to ban illegal journalistic activities

The State Duma will consider in its first reading a draft law regulating the practice of journalism in the territory of the Russian Federation. The document proposes to legalize all media representatives and remove from the sphere of all the «black journalists». At the same time, the deputies propose to make the work of the official representatives of the mass media more responsible, obliging everyone to carry with them the appropriate certificate issued by the state certification authority for journalists.

“There are a lot of journalists today and most of them do not represent the media or even call themselves bloggers. It is time to clean up this area and expel all impostors from it. Interaction with the instances of the press and average citizens is different. There were funny cases when security forces confused journalists and drug dealers. Upon presentation of the document, such confusion would not have happened, ”said the author of the bill, Vasily Lomova.

In order to implement the law in practice, the deputies propose to bring persons engaged in journalism illegally into administrative, and in the case of mass abuses, criminal liability. The amount of fines for illegal engaging in journalistic activities will vary from 1,500 to 10,000 rubles, depending on the severity of the offense and the harm done to society.
