The Prosecutor General’s Office reminded the Russians of the criminal liability for treason

Providing financial, consulting and other assistance to foreign states and organizations in activities against Russia’s security entails criminal liability, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office said.

The department recalled that the Russian armed forces are conducting a “special operation to protect the DPR and LPR.”

“It must be taken into account that the provision of financial, logistical, consulting or other assistance to a foreign state, an international or foreign organization or their representatives in activities directed against the security of the Russian Federation contains signs of a crime under Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (high treason)” , the message says.

Committing a crime is punishable by imprisonment for up to 20 years. The Prosecutor General’s Office will evaluate each fact of rendering assistance to another country “in activities directed against the security of the Russian Federation.”

Earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office announced that it was taking measures against “the spread of fakes about events related to the conduct of a special operation by Russia to protect the DPR and LPR.” The department warned that through Roskomnadzor it would demand an out-of-court blocking of inaccurate information.

On February 21, the President of Russia announced the recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DNR and LNR). He signed federal laws on the ratification of treaties of friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance with these republics, which include, among other things, military assistance to these territories. On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in the Donbass.

Putin called its goal the protection of people who “are subjected to bullying, genocide by the Kiev regime.” At the same time, he noted that Russia has no plans to occupy Ukraine, but Moscow will strive for the demilitarization and denazification of this country.
