Officials sever erotica from porn

October 10 2007

The Ministry of Culture prepared a draft law "On Restriction of circulation of materials of erotic and pornographic nature." Officials promise that the document finally appears clear definition of pornography, which distinguishes it from erotica, and will also be restrictions on the circulation of pornographic materials. The bill will bring to review in November. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Culture Pavel Pozhigaylo.

Notorious restrictions, in fact, cause the greatest number of questions. Ban on trade in pornography, next to children's institutions, of course, good thing, but here is the age limit set by the Office, looks strange. Officials have decided what to buy pornographic materials will not be up to 21 years. Given that at this age, many manage to serve in the army, get a job and to get families, it seems that the degree of trauma, they can get when viewing movies for adults, is greatly exaggerated.

The main reason for creating the bill was the large number of appeals to the Office of the population. In his letters to the Russian citizens are asked to prohibit the sale of "strawberries" and showing pornography on television.

The basis of the bill went to SRI developments prosecutors, in addition, cultural officials have adopted a scheme of its earlier decision to ban gambling. We also used the laws on public morality in Latvia and Ukraine, the morality of Germany, France and Belgium.

A similar project has already been tried in the past year to promote the State Duma Chuyev Savel'ev, and steep, but it was rejected in first reading. That the Ministry of Culture has prepared a bill until the end of 2007, Chuev connects with the need to recruit trumps before December elections. Deputy Head of Office Pozhigaylo, however, denied any political motivation in the actions of the ministry, stressing that the law will be actively discussed already at the end of the election.

Pozhigaylo noted that his department is working on a bill on pornography and the Ministry of Justice, as affected by a significant number of related laws. The main problem that arose when developing the document, he said, is that profit from pornography and indirect effects on other sectors of the economy and, hence, the officials had to calculate the consequences of trafficking in pornography restrictions. Implementation of the law also will increase the state's cultural agency, to which also need money.

Officials have promised in the Introduction of the bill based on public opinion and to pay attention to, primarily, to the aspect of the mass distribution of pornography through the TV. "If on television practically in the daytime is a popular talk show host about pedophilia and still showing frank episodes where perverts have fun with children, or detailed scenes of cruelty and violence, it is worth considering that such transfers should be moved either in the late regime or at additional charge format "- summed up Paul Pozhigaylo.
