“The sanctions on Russia are doubly illegal. Not only statesmen or deputies but also families, who are in no way able to influence their relatives, would be responsible for the mythical violations invented by them. The West could also embrace other progressive family rules: for example, there are many useful things in the ways of the Italian ‘Ndrangheta and Cosa Nostra ”.
So Dmitry Medvedev.
The vice president of the Russian Security Council criticizes the sanctions against the family members of Russian politicians, comparing them to mafia methods and citing ‘Ndrangheta and Cosa Nostra.
“It seems that the West has decided to reproduce the best practices of the past”, Medvedev wrote on Telegram, as reported by Tass, citing not only the mafia methods: “You can go even deeper into history. We remember the Code of Hammurabi which said, as you know, that if a badly built house collapsed and killed a son of its owner, it was permissible to kill a son of the builder ”.
THE FULL TEXT OF MEDVEDEV’S INVECTIVE
But here is the text published on Telegram by Putin’s right-hand man.
“In law there is the concept of“ objective imputation ”. This is when responsibility comes without establishing guilt. Only by action or inaction. Generally without the intent or negligence of the offender. It is very convenient to speed up the criminal process: it is not necessary to collect evidence of the person’s guilt. This principle has been used in various periods of history. Including in our country in the thirties, bringing to justice members of the families of the enemies of the people. If you bear the same surname as the parent who committed the crime, you will also pass under the 58th Criminal Code of the RSFSR of 1926.
True, such a criminal-legal policy was subsequently strongly rejected. Both here and abroad. Its inhuman nature is evident. Liability in criminal law is now exercised only for a guilty offense. In the presence of willful misconduct or negligence of the person who committed the crime. No blame, no judgment. Objective imputation is not allowed (clause 2, article 5 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
But it appears that the West has decided to reproduce the best practices of the past. We take the sanctions. There is a double mistake here. Now, according to their model, not only the participants in political events – statesmen or deputies, but also their families, who are in no way able to influence their relatives, are responsible for the mythical violations invented in the West, according to the their model. Once the European and American lawmakers have decided, it means that the family will respond. Completely and guilt-free. And we block the accounts of family members, their properties, we do not cross the border with Western values!
Wonderfully thought out.
The acceptance by the West of other progressive family rules can be foreseen in the future. For example, there are many useful things in the costumes of the Italian ‘Ndrangheta and Cosa Nostra. Or you can delve into the story. Remember the laws of Hammurabi. There, as you know, due to the death of the son of the owner of the house due to the collapse of the building, badly executed by the builder, it was possible to kill the builder’s son.
This, of course, is a new and at the same time well-forgotten word in justice and criminal policy. Family members are responsible for everything. Family members of a politician or businessman. House builder family. Or the family members of an enemy of the people, as per art. 58 of the penal code of the RSFSR 1926
We are now awaiting the return of the law of retaliation (fair pay for deeds) into Western laws. And what? What’s wrong with that? Everyone will be able to administer justice according to the principle of “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”! So that none of the relatives will turn away from an equal answer! Well, then they can restore Lynch’s courts there. Simultaneously with the legalization of the Ku Klux Klan. Americans have a rich history here! ”.
