Russia Imposes Penalties on Involving Children in Public Protests

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law Thursday imposing penalties on organizers accused of letting children younger than 18 participate in unsanctioned protests, further tightening Moscow’s restrictions on freedom of assembly.

Proposed in May and passed by the Russian legislature last week, the law amends Article 20.02 of the federal government’s Code of Administrative Offenses to establish fines for involving minors in any “unauthorized meeting, rally, demonstration, procession or picketing.”
