President Putin Signs "Law Against Orphans"

28 December 2012

In the Kremlin they call it the "Federal Law on measures against persons complicit in the violation of fundamental human rights and freedoms, the rights and freedoms of citizens of Russia".

The Federal Law was passed by the State Duma on 21 December 2012, approved by the Council of the Federation on 26 December 2012, and signed by the President of the Russian Federation on 28 December.

It is purely a coincidence that 28 December is the day Christians mark Holy Innocents’ Day.
