Russia has ratified convention on fighting financing of terrorism

The State Duma ratified the international convention "On fighting the financing of terrorism" from December 9, 1999, on its plenary session on Friday.

Russia signed the document in New York on April 3, 2000.

The convention is "intended to fill the gap in the international law regime of antiterrorist cooperation," said Alexander Kotenkov, the president's plenipotentiary in the State Duma. The convention envisages criminal, legal and administrative responsibility for crimes connected with financing terrorism and stipulates a new corpus delicti that was not mentioned in the previous conventions.

With 226 votes necessary for the ratification, 362 MPs voted for and one was against it, with none abstained.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
