The government of Russia is going to pass the law, which implies paying fines for using maps of the Russian Federation without annexed Crimea. The Russian newspaper Izvestia reports about this bill referring to the words of the so-called “Senate from Crimea” Serhiy Tsekov.
The Federation Council of Russia will review this bill. They claim that using maps without annexed Crimea on them is a violation of the law on border integrity.
The Federal Registration Service of Russia confirmed that the law on depicting the border has not been passed yet, but the formation of law is in the process, the newspaper reports.
This bill concerns not only Crimea, but also the whole territory of the Russian Federation, stated the co-author of the bill Olha Kovitidi.
Earlier, Guinness World Records called occupied Crimea’s Sevastopol a Russian territory.
