Medvedev allowed the lifting of the moratorium on the death penalty in Russia

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev stated that the moratorium on death penalty in Russia can be overcome if necessary.

According to the former president, the largest countries in the world with nuclear weapons (USA, China, India) have the death penalty, while Russia has a corresponding moratorium.

“Within the framework of the current Constitution, the moratorium on the death penalty can be overcome, if necessary, by changing the legal positions of the Constitutional Court of Russia. This is a matter of choosing means to protect the interests of our people, the state and society,” Medvedev wrote in his Telegram channel.

He said that in Russia, foreigners arrange sabotage and terrorist attacks on railway facilities, and some citizens of the Russian Federation do not show patriotic sentiments – they set fire to military registration and enlistment offices and destroy infrastructure facilities. Medvedev recalled that during the Great Patriotic War, such “saboteurs” were shot without trial or investigation.

“Because if you are a traitor who committed such a crime in wartime, then you have neither age, nor nationality, nor even the right to protect your life,” the politician emphasized.
