image for Putin signs law stipulating ten years behind bars for desertion and surrender

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law amending the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation to specify harsher penalties for desertion, looting and surrender.

Source: Interfax news agency, with a link to the official legal information portal of the Russian Federation.

Details: In particular, the law introduces the concepts of "mobilisation", "martial law" and "wartime" to the Criminal Code.

One of the new ones is Article 352.1 ("Voluntary surrender").

A Russian soldier can face 3-10 years in prison for this, if there are no indications of treason.

At the same time, the law proposes to consider the commission of this crime "during a period of mobilisation, martial law or wartime" as aggravating circumstances (Article 63).

The penalty for unauthorised leave during a period of mobilisation and martial law (Article 337 of the Criminal Code) is more severe than in peacetime. »

But Emerson is one of several people who have experienced this on multiple different American Airlines flights.

The fact that the captain’s announcements are overriding (ducking) it but the flight attendants aren’t is also an indication it’s coming from that system. »
