The moratorium on the death penalty will be abolished, but not soon, Senior Deputy Speaker of the Russian State Duma Lyubov Sliska thinks. "The current tendency in the society shows that we are close to that already," she told journalists. Sliska expressed her position that Russia should get back to the death penalty for punishing both terrorists and organizers of terrorist acts as well. All other punishments for these crimes, including life imprisonment, won't be efficient enough. Meanwhile, life imprisonment shall be used for other types of crimes, the official added.
Answering a question, whether the abolishment of the moratorium would aggravate relations between Russia and Europe or not, Sliska said: "Europe doesn't have the problems that Russia has." According to the Senior Deputy Speaker of the parliament's lower house, Russia should first of all think about its national security. All possible difficulties in relations with Europe that may appear can be settled diplomatically.
