Andrey Klishas, ​​Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, expects that the State Duma will consider amendments to the Criminal and Criminal Procedure Codes by the end of the year, removing certain violations in the field of entrepreneurial activity from the zone of criminal responsibility.

The draft law of the Ministry of Justice, published on August 4 for public discussion, involves, in particular, amending the criminal law to decriminalize certain acts in the field of entrepreneurial activity, for which no imprisonment is provided.

“We in the Federation Council will support the proposals of the Ministry of Justice to decriminalize a number of economic structures, and I hope that the Duma will consider these proposals by the end of this year,” the senator wrote in his Telegram channel.

Earlier, he noted that this initiative is aimed at improving the business climate in Russia in the face of sanctions pressure.
