The head of the Constitutional Committee of the Federation Council Andrey Klishas (pictured) commented on the initiative of the leader of "Fair Russia — For the Truth" Sergey Mironov on the death penalty for terrorists and murderers of children. According to the senator, her return is possible only with the adoption of the new Constitution of the Russian Federation.

"They are going to "insist on the introduction of the death penalty for murderers of children and terrorists", I would like to understand the action plan of the initiators of the return of the death penalty (unless, of course, this plan consists of loud statements and does not consist)", - Klishas said in a message on his Telegram channel.

He further recalled the position of the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation Valery Zorkin, who considers the return of capital punishment in Russia possible only if a new basic law is adopted.

Earlier today, the chairman of the "Fair Russia — For the Truth" party said that his party would insist on "shooting" pedophiles, child killers, terrorists and their accomplices. He told about this in an interview with RIA Novosti.

"We offered for the murder of children — those pedophiles who rape children and kill, that is, ends with the death of a child — we have a proposal that terrorists and their accomplices, and murderers of children, (they) really need to be sentenced to capital punishment, to execution… We insist on this, and we will insist", - Mironov said.

He referred to opinion polls according to which 70% of Russians support the return of the death penalty. The politician also pointed out the imperfection of the judicial system, and therefore considers it necessary that such sentences be carried out only after the confirmation of the court of first instance by the Supreme Court with a jury.
