Disputes around the new amendments to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on the concepts of espionage and treason

After lengthy discussions in the first reading, the deputies of the State Duma adopted amendments to the articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on treason and espionage. The amendments were drafted by the FSB and made by the Government 4 a year ago, and at a certain period the work on adopting them was suspended with the wording “it is necessary to think more carefully”. Suspension was initiated, as they say, from above - by President Dmitry Medvedev.

After the appearance of information on the adoption by parliamentarians of the new version of the articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation in the first reading, as usual, the serious discussion in the press and blogosphere began to seethe. What is interesting, despite the fact that Rossiyskaya Gazeta presented the full version of the articles edited by the deputies, the judgments about the amendments made are very different, including, absolutely opposite to each other. And if offhand to take and read a few, even quite reputable federal publications, it turns out that analysts' opinions on the amendments made to the articles on espionage and treason are significantly different.

So, what has undergone significant changes in these articles of the Criminal Code?

An updated definition of the term “treason” has appeared:

High treason, that is, an act committed by a citizen of the Russian Federation to the detriment of the security of the Russian Federation: espionage, extradition to a foreign state, international or foreign organization, or their representatives, information constituting a state secret, trusted to a person or made known to him in service, work or study, or provision of financial, material, technical, consulting or other assistance to a foreign state, international or foreign organization or their representatives in activities Nost directed against the security of the Russian Federation, including its constitutional order, sovereignty, territorial and state integrity.

The definition itself already contains the key points of the changes.

One of, let's say, radical changes can be considered the emergence of an additional article (Art. 283.1), which is called "Illegal receipt of information constituting a state secret." The punishment for such unlawful acts appears to be quite lenient and amounts either to imprisonment for up to 4 years, or to penalties in the amount of 200 thousand to 500 thousand rubles. The softness of punishment in this case, according to the authors of the article, is due to the fact that the article will concern those persons who tried to illegally obtain secret information without setting themselves the task of using this information for spy purposes. However, there is an option in which a person who commits an act aimed at illegally obtaining information constituting a state secret may receive up to 8 years in prison. Such a precedent will arise if the receipt of information took place with the participation of a group of persons, using violent acts, or technical means. In the latter case, we can talk about the so-called cyber-variant of obtaining secret data.

Some people call the article that has emerged as an anti-democratic nightmare that infringes on human rights, while others, on the contrary, are inclined to say that the changes made in this case are rather mild. In general, how many people, so many, as you know, and opinions ... The article itself does not look superfluous, but at the same time it has its weak points. I will formulate them below, and if experienced lawyers find gaps in the reasoning, I will be glad to study them in the comments.

If you take a close look at the presented changes, the article does not quite unambiguously reveal how it is generally possible to determine whether persons who forcibly obtained secret information were gathered, use them for acts falling under the status of treason or espionage, or did not. In this case, the entire burden falls on the shoulders of law enforcement, collecting evidence on the unraveled case. If a certain group of individuals (or an individual) monitors an employee of a certain secret enterprise, and then attacks him in a dark alley and takes away a bag with secret documents, is there a chance for state prosecutors to prove that the attackers did this solely for the purpose of espionage? Obviously, with an experienced lawyer, everything can be presented in a completely different form. The attackers attacked the employee of the secret center, not knowing that he was an employee of such a center, and the bag was torn out of his hands, only to then pull out his mobile phone and wallet. The papers, of which secrecy, naturally, did not suspect anything, for example, were burned on the road or used for need ...

And in general, it is not entirely clear whether it may be necessary to forcibly acquire secret data without using this data for spy purposes. This question is answered by representatives of the FSB, as will be described a little lower. In the meantime, there are a couple of options that can be pre-voiced in this case. Option one: a certain third party used banal robbers to steal secret documents from an employee of a closed research center (or some similar structure). The robbers were caught, but they said that they didn’t care about the papers they obtained by force, and they stole them solely for the sake of profit from the customer, whose name and data may not be known. Option Two: banal curiosity (and this happens). The situation of the following plan: “Come on, let me see what is in your diplomat ... Ah, don't give it to you! Then I'll take it by force! Oh, yes, there are some drawings ... I'll take it home, have the children paint ... ”Something like that. Well, if the article is used for the last two options, then the 200 thousand fine is understandable in principle, but everything else somehow hardly fits into such a mild punishment for those who consciously took possession of secret information, knowing that they are secret .

And now directly about why the FSB developed this article. As they say, official information without any copyright speculation.

The press service of the Federal Security Service expressed the following way: the introduction of the new article is intended to put a barrier to those who are going to confer the status of an object that can be sold or bought to a state secret. In general, as it is not difficult to understand, the first scenario works - the scenario with the presence of third parties.

There are other changes in the part of the Criminal Code that concerns treason and espionage. These changes are already quite straightforward. For example, in the draft law, which was adopted in the first reading, it was stated that only the person who deals with such information on duty (study) can issue secret information that somehow relates to the concept of state secrets. In other words, it’s impossible to condemn a person who found a flash drive containing secret files on the street and then put these files on his social media page to discuss interesting pictures with his friends if this person has nothing to do with such files at all. did not have. This is a very thoughtful part of the bill, which cuts off numerous misinterpretations about the fact that now for the treason they can condemn any homeless person from the street, sleeping on secret papers, accidentally flying out of the window of a military unit.

The appearance in the Criminal Code of such an addition, which concerns not only the activities of, say, for the benefit of foreign intelligence services, but also for the benefit of international organizations collecting certain information, can also be considered a timely novelty of the articles of the Criminal Code on espionage and treason. This addition will help prevent citizens from transferring secret information to certain funds, committees, services, and other non-profit organizations created under foreign patronage. After all, it is no secret that intelligence is modernized and modified over time, and therefore, in the territory of the Russian Federation over the past few years, some institutions have been opened with very dubious tasks. For example, nothing prevents the opening of some hypothetical fund for assistance to Russian nuclear physicists, whose main office is located somewhere in Michigan, and branches in Russian cities ... And what kind of assistance does nuclear physics have, and why do nuclear physicists decided to provide such assistance - a big question. So, in order to have fewer questions, the article suppresses any desire to pour out one’s soul in front of various kinds of foreign structures hiding behind human rights activities.

It should be noted that spying activities now include consulting services, material, technical and financial assistance to organizations that are found to be collecting sensitive information.

For obvious reasons, such a change in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation made the most democratized sections of society say that the Russian authorities are trying to exert pressure on NGOs again. Well, and what is the Russian government still to do, if through these very NPOs in recent years much more information containing state secrets has passed than through all the intelligence agencies of the world working against Russia, taken together ... At this, as they say, blame the mirror. "

Are the changes made similar to the opening of the road for witch hunters? - Hardly. Rather, on the contrary, the adoption of amendments is connected with the protection of the rights and freedoms of those who are accustomed to living according to the law and not using pseudo-democratic slogans for information frauds aimed at undermining the country's security.

    I read a lot of reviews about this law, which is annoying, is the substitution of the concepts of the so-called human rights defenders. Example: from an interview with L. Alekseeva
    "- According to this law, absolutely anyone can be sent to jail for a long time. Not only me, but you as well. This is an anti-legal repressive document. There have not been such things in our country since Stalin's time. If you have expressed any critical remarks about the authorities. ..

    Excuse me, but what does the criticism have to do with it, is the law on state secrets?

    - I'll give you an example. Let's say your newspaper is holding a round table where a remark is made about falsification of elections, about the illegitimacy of parliament. And there are foreign journalists at the conference, or your publication is quoted in the foreign press. Please: you divulged the state secret. "
    Rare nonsense. The spies are completely lazy, everyone wants a freebie. On the other hand, if I call an important government official an "asshole", will it be public disclosure? secrets?

    Criminal cases in the Russian Federation are often fabricated by law enforcement officers, and people who are not involved in the crime are undeservedly punished. Given the country's judicial system, corruption, the struggle for "indicators", the bias of the investigation, anyone, if you want, can be blamed for everything from theft to rape, there would be a desire.
    New amendments to the Criminal Code return the interpretation of treason to the Motherland in the manner that was characteristic of the repressive machine in the 37th year. By the adoption of this bill, the State Duma actually unties the FSB’s hands to make claims under the article “High treason”, as well as the free conduct of operational development in relation to almost any citizen, even a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights, even official work, can fall under this concept under the new law under a contract with foreign civil organizations, it can be recognized as criminal if the investigation proves (and it proves) that these structures acted against the state. And the person who will know the secret information not only from work, but also from school or in other cases will be responsible to the court for the issuance of state secrets.
    These amendments to the Criminal Code are another proof that the country is on the path of turning democracy (some kind) into a totalitarian society. Is it worth living in such a country !? Or you need to leave ... while there is an opportunity.

    "High treason, that is, an act committed by a citizen of the Russian Federation to the detriment of the security of the Russian Federation: espionage, the issuance of information to a foreign state, international or foreign organization or their representatives, constituting a state secret, a confidant or which has become known to him through service, work or study, or providing financial, material and technical, consulting or other assistance to a foreign state, international or foreign organization or their representatives in activities directed against the security of the Russian Federation, including its constitutional order, sovereignty, territorial and state integrity. "

    Almost (almost!) Every word and phrase can be interpreted in different ways. In my opinion...
    That's it (earlier) that there was a law enforcement practice, judicial bulletins came out, with an explanation of the application of the rules, with a reference to specific situations. As of now - I don’t know ...
    Why am I talking? For each new rule of law, a "run-in" time is required. This time is a time of trial and ... errors, alas. Of course, the main goal is to find a "middle ground". But ... it's time ...

    But I want to say something else. I do not expect anything POSITIVE from these "innovations". Will explain. All the latest initiatives of the country's leadership to "improve" the UK are aimed at ... laughing liberalization of liability for economic crimes laughing
    Plus to this, the latest "innovations" under the law on illegal rallies. And this is a song !!! All the pro-Putin protesters: "No to the 'liberals'!" But what did you get with the "trailer"? Now it is not even possible (!!!) to go to the administration (building) and tell them that they, bureaucrats, are muda ... There are no roads, heating, gas, no living conditions, etc. It will be announced that this is not a legitimate political rally, they will find the guilty person ... and punish him ... but they will pack him for at least 5 days. An example for the rest !!!
    Example (from another area): young guys, wanted to get adrEnalin, jumped on ropes from the "unfinished" ... Poli (MUDA) tseyskie arrived and the organizer ... I will show you "thrown" in ... not a legal, political "meeting". fool
    There you have it - for example ... in kind.

    You either live in some other country, or are very far from the real situation in the judicial system of the Russian Federation. In a country where acquittals constitute, in fact, about 0,2% of the number of decisions made in criminal cases. A total of 13 million decisions, of which 1 million in criminal cases. And a total of seven hundred and sixteen acquittals. If we exclude cases of private prosecution (citizens ’complaints to the court about beatings and slander), then approximately 20 judges a year DO NOT MAKE A SINGLE JUSTIFICATION SENTENCE. No one pays attention to a lawyer, no matter what he does (some even go on a hunger strike, such a chaos is going on). The decision is made even before the consideration of the case on the merits, by agreement between the judge and the prosecutor. Sometimes, very rarely, retraining can be achieved.
    At present, the best defense is full admission of guilt and a special procedure for considering the case. Although you all admit exactly yourself when you put a boiler in FKU SIZO UFSIN ... well.

    You want to, so look .....
    For a year so in this 93rd, I made a topographic plan (with reference to geodetic towers) of the city of Kaluga. Naturally, I went to the post office and the telegraph office. At the same time, without a permit. The only admission for me was this: "Federal Geodesy Service". After these words, all the information lay on the table at mnu. And the addresses of Post Offices, and Savings Bank. And even the topographic location of the regional executive committee (I don't remember what it was called at that time) - I got it very simply. We lived in the coolest hotel in Kaluga. Who is the gond ... is he - I, who worked for the General Staff, or the General Staff himself, who made him make maps for the same General Staff, but with the involvement of civilian specialists?
    I earned 280 rubles from the top plan of Kaluga (why I remember what was equivalent to the distance) - the General Staff simply forgot, he didn’t need this data.
    Do you know why? Because a year earlier, my brother's classmates (MIIGAiK) made this plan quietly .....

      Not a lawyer, but I will answer! In order to be able to talk with everyone and on all topics, it is necessary to steal 10 million dollars from the treasury, so you will become a "respected democrats" and no one else will touch you. If you can steal much more, the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation will begin to greet you. If you steal more than 000 bucks, VVP will greet you by the hand. After that, you "the devil himself is not a brother" can do and say what you want. Dare with us "democracy"! drinks
      Can not steal - better keep silent.

    Part one. Idiocy

    You know, I read the article because I have long been waiting for the intelligible comments of this born child from the walls of the FSB.
    but when I read the comments - I realized that most members of the forum clearly did not move ..

    This Serdyukov was given to you with his harem - he fulfilled his role = broke the old Soviet army, withdrew part of the material resources (land, buildings, weapons, ....), not completely ... were not given ... :) :) :):

    It’s a pity I didn’t get to my city: in the city, a part of the Navy occupies a building from 40-50 in the city center.
    The building has long been time for a bulldozer and people to give the land. No. There are barracks. Windows on the ground.

    You probably do not really understand the essence of this law. Then remember the Internet blacklist law. Guided by this law, it is possible to direct such a chuckler in the Russian part of the Internet that it will not seem enough. We are told that someone takes care of the children, but suicide bombers - both jumped - and jumped (how do the kids learn what drugs are in the yards - and they will find out further, child pornography?) - they have been struggling with this entire planet for a long time.

    So what is the law, in the most important thing: EXTENSION of the concept of high treason.
    Now it is considered a state treason if you - in any form (financial, material, technical, consulting or other assistance to a foreign state, international or foreign organization or their representatives in activities) inflict security on Russia - harm.

    Can anyone define the word SECURITY for me ???
    And then I swear at him every time.
    What is considered "security"? Anything can be summed up under this word.

    By the way, this forum, too, easily pulls as a resource that causes Russia's security - harm.
    And citizens posting articles and commenting - it’s easy to follow the Criminal Code - then prove that you are not a deer and used open sources.

    You also forget that any court where the FSB freaks or the concept of state secrets appears is smoothly turning into a closed farce. Where it is absolutely impossible to understand: a person is guilty or not.

    What are the stupid examples cited by the author of the article?
    Show me the idiots who carry home secret stuff at night from work in a briefcase. Funds? So the emergence of any funds to support our poor scientists automatically puts them under the hood of the FSB. Their activities, as well as money transactions are monitored.

        The laws already passed are enough to condemn any traitor. The latest laws and regulations in the Russian Federation serve just to limit the discontent of citizens of the Russian Federation. Remember the officer who showed the canned food supplied for the RF Armed Forces - how many years he was sentenced, and the thief Serdyukov and "K" were appointed deputy.

    Part two. Let's sit all.

    Recently, physicist Valentin Danilov (who is already over 60), released on parole. According to investigators, being the director of the thermal physics center of the Krasnoyarsk State Technical University, he handed over to the representatives, he handed over materials containing state secrets to the Chinese special services. In 2004, the physicist was found guilty and sentenced to 13 years in prison. The bottom line is simple in 2001, a physicist with hunger agreed to assist a Chinese citizen with a project to install a device to protect the spacecraft from the electric field (or ionization). For 8 years now, the vultures of secrecy have been removed from his work. He did the work, the Chinese got what they wanted. Here freaks from the FSB got out. Further clear ??

    In June of this year, two Voenmeh professors were convicted of spying for China. According to the FSB, teachers Svyatoslav Bobyshev and Yevgeny Afanasyev sold information about the Bulava missile to Chinese intelligence. Both are 12 years old in a strict regime colony.
    The question immediately arose: how did the representatives of state secrets generally find themselves abroad ??? they must be absolutely non-exit (as in the USSR). The second question arises, how sideways are the professor's data on the Mace, if it was developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermophysics? Do we have secret documents that just walk around Moscow ... from one institute to another?
    Here in the article are still miserables-seated.
    Who makes cards of permission above 1: 25000 take note. There, one is already smoking.
    The whole problem is that the law in its current concept is wide to apply. You want it, you want it differently. and you won’t reach the truth.

      You write garbage! It is because of such "sedentary unfortunate people" who in the 90s lined up as initiators in line at the American and other foreign embassies to sell at least something from the information to which they had access, as well as from higher-ranking Judas and collapsed state. And how much grief the betrayal brought in Chechnya and not only there! Betrayal must not be justified, but punishedso that the Gordievsky, Kalugin, Rezuns and other nits fear would not let them live peacefully on the thirty pieces of silver they received, and they would be thoughtful three times!

    The question is for those who fear reprisals, why should an objectionable person be let under state. treason, when it’s easier to plant drugs. There are many other articles under which you can summarize any. As they said, there would be a person, but there would be an article.
    A question for the supporters of tough measures - let's say a kid walking down the lanes, found a folder or a flash drive with secret docks, without even understanding their content, impressed by the name of the project "Strategic Target Boot Sputtered with Depleted Uranium to Change the Course of US Foreign Policy by Transferring Kinetic Energy from boot the gluteal muscles of the top US leadership "and tells his friends about what he saw or even shows him to the wall for it?

    Takashi, you are right on the one hand ... But, on the other hand, no one sold any secrets from the radio plant in Chelyabinsk (although Buran planted Buran at the time). Who is right - you, protecting one renegade, or a city and a factory that held on, although there was nothing to eat at all, despite the Ural and other allowances? Or a locksmith who couldn’t take out the secrets of handling trunks from IZhmash, although Izh was not living better? AND? These QMS must be put to the wall, even if 148 years is not a secret - why is it not in the public domain? Particleboard, probably?

      What are you all clinging to for some reason? Each of his own and the other does not want to understand. Throw one broom and traitors and victims of idiocy of power ("renegades", "sedentary miserables"). No one claims that it is permissible to betray or act on one’s homeland at the expense of its security (security is interpreted in a number of laws as a state of security, and the literal interpretation is the absence of danger). This is unacceptable and must be punished in the most severe way. But in this case we are talking about the wording of the articles of laws and conditions in the country, on which law enforcement practice depends. And the conditions are: corruption and global theft with the desire of law enforcement officers of all stripes to show their work to those who are not involved and defenseless. It is these conditions and facts that lead, in particular, to Z.A. and Takashi, and alarming. It would be possible to believe and not escalate, but the betrayal of the Motherland has no statute of limitations, and those who competed in real trading in the country's security turned out to be aloof. And those who passed the unique wiretap system at the US Embassy, ​​and those who ... hell with them, you know who. In short, there is a feeling that they are trying to stake a clearing, like you are not trashing in the status of homeland trading (at the same time no one really understands what your homeland is trading), and also tighten the nut in order to regulate everything and everything, as it should be through a bureaucratic the state.

    The trouble is, if the boots start to wear ... and so on. Of course, Volodin made a reservation that gaps in his reasoning are possible, but recalling the journalistic classics: Agranovsky, Peskov or Vizbor, it is worth keeping in mind that before writing, they, as they say, "entered" the topic. They did not understand thoroughly (this is what specialists are needed for), but they did not ask idiotic questions, and were careful in their reasoning. Why am I? The fact is that Volodin's reasoning is very similar to the reasoning of Alekseeva and others like her.
    Only the "baushka" does this quite deliberately, while Volodin is unpretentious. That's why there are examples. the ones given by him have nothing to do with the article on treason. Z.A.M. I think you got excited. The disposition of the article quite clearly outlines the very concept of state. treason. It differs little from the Soviet edition, but this does not speak of its negative side. If, as follows from your comment, you write in detail, then in the Criminal Code it turns out that the law on the state should be rewritten. secret, as well as information components. (After that, the compilers, in theory, themselves should go to the bunk, for the law should be published). ...

    Many spoke out here that the law is crude. With this I agree, I will explain why.
    Differentiation of an unlawful act is necessary - the illegal receipt of state information. secrets, intentionally and unintentionally. In addition, it is necessary to introduce differentiation according to the consequences - whether this information was transmitted or distributed, or it was not transmitted to anyone, was not published anywhere. In the latter case, if a public danger arises, then it is extremely insignificant. The only problem is that it will be difficult to find out all the nuances in each episode.

    Similar laws have long been in force in European countries and the United States.
    Maybe this edition is imperfect. But a holey fence is better than none. And to eliminate holes there is a mechanism for amending. In any case, laws change with life.
    In any case, the presence of such a law will force everyone working in the field to which it relates not to relax. You know, there were such posters: "The enemy does not sleep", "Chatterbox is a godsend for a spy," etc.
