Klishas rejected Medvedev's idea to punish "traitors" according to the "rules of wartime"

The head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and state Building, Andrei Klishas, did not support the idea of Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev that it is time to punish "traitors" in Russia according to "wartime rules".

Klishas recalled that in Russia has not yet adopted "wartime laws". In his opinion, it is impossible to act outside the framework of the Constitution and the current legislation, and those politicians who propose to violate the basic law of the country "must leave the constitutional authorities of the country." The senator wrote about this in his Telegram channel.

This was preceded by Medvedev's words that "in times of war there were always such special rules" and "quiet groups of immaculately inconspicuous people who effectively execute them."

Previously, high-ranking Russian politicians have repeatedly proposed to introduce harsh punitive measures against those whom they consider "traitors". In particular, they intended to introduce a defeat in their rights against those who left the country after the start of a special military operation (SVO) of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, and those who evade mobilization. They were offered to take away property from them and transfer it to the needs of its participants. A number of State Duma deputies also suggested including those who do not publicly support their own among the "unreliable".

For example, the chairman of the State Duma Committee on Control Oleg Morozov (United Russia) proposed to ban such citizens from entering the Russia and generally deprive them of Russian citizenship.

In accordance with the current Constitution of the Russian Federation, everyone has the right to life, protection of human dignity, preservation of private property rights and other benefits. Fundamental rights and freedoms are inalienable and belong to everyone from birth. Russians who have received citizenship "by right of soil" cannot be deprived of it under any circumstances. The basic law of the country also guarantees all Russians free departure from the country and unhindered return to their homeland.

Klishas proposed to deprive the mandate of those parliamentarians who come up with initiatives that contradict the foundations of the Constitutional system, including the idea of deprivation of citizenship, Forbes notes. "For a number of colleagues, the craving for outrageous statements wins everything," Klishas explained his arguments.
