Rights holders supporting sanctions to pay in rubles - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed on Friday a decree which obligates certain copyright holders to complete the payment of obligations in Russian rubles.

According to the document published on Russia's official portal of legal information, this procedure will be valid for copyright owners associated with "unfriendly" countries, supporting anti-Russian sanctions by banning the use of their trademarks in Russia or leaving the country due to the imposed measures, or "disrespecting" the Russian army, its authorities and official symbols.

The State Duma proposed a yet-to-be-adopted punishment of up to 10 years in prison for the executive heads who support the sanctions on Russia.
