Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on decriminalization of battery in the family. The corresponding document was published on the official web portal of legal information. The current law excludes Art. 116 of the Criminal Code (Battery Against Family Members and Close Persons) of the number of crimes and transfers it into the category of administrative offenses.
Previously, the law was approved by the Federation Council. Human rights activists asked Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko to postpone the adoption of the amendments to the draft of the law "On prevention of domestic violence." With criticism of the law Senator Anton Belyakov walked out. However, the document was adopted by the votes of 149 senators. The decriminalization of Article 116 of the Criminal Code (Battery) the State Duma approved in June 2016.
