And you wonder why Russia (the country suffering from Stockholm syndrome) has a poor reputation. The entire culture seems to thrive "might=right" and the only way to get people to respect you is through fear and power (basically small penis syndrome). Well this latest headline does nothing to eliviate perceptions some people have that Russia is filled with woman abusers and alcoholics. No small surprise their woman want to leave so badly.

In Russia, giving one's spouse a slap is nothing extraordinary for many people. This week, the Russian parliament is expected to take a step closer toward decriminalizing it altogether.

Battery is a criminal offense in Russia, but nearly 20 percent of Russians openly say they think it is sometimes OK to hit a spouse or a child. In a bid to accommodate conservative voters, deputies in the lower house of parliament have given initial approval to a bill eliminating criminal liability for domestic violence that stops short of serious bodily harm or rape.

Just to clarify, it removes battery right? Not aimed at spousal abuse but if someone is in a punch-up why waste the court's time? SA has the same problem with these cases just being thrown out. I agree with Battery being removed, however, spousal abuse should be the same as serious bodily harm/Assault with a deadly weapon.

From the article...

So what does "serious bodily harm" mean? You can give your partner a black eye but if you break a limb that's just not on...? :mad:

The article mentions removing criminal liability of spousal abuse that falls short of "serious bodily harm or rape", not sure what "serious" constitutes in this context but it seems to be say you can smack you partner around a bit as long as your don't do lasting damage...:wtf:

Agreed.

I definitely believe there should be a distinction between hitting a spouse and hitting a drunk neighbour. Punch-ups happen let's not pretend they don't. And normally one makes a case against the other, in court he says she says and the Judge throws the case out. It's a waste of court time. But if someone is seriously hurt it goes beyond a normal punch-up. But a clear distinction needs to be drawn between a domestic spouse and a random nut job.

It's aimed at spouse abuse as the crux of the article. But the law is about removing battery completely. It's not aimed at spousal abuse. It's just the angle of the article.

lol clueless

btw, the women beat on the men there and the guys take it mostly, "man must be strong". russian ladies are pretty, and rough.


there used to be a culture of friday vodka after work and some bad fighting from it, its no longer like that. theres a story behind it too.

stop throwing stones from your safe space and go see. i bet you dream about the fears of russia every night.

Appears there's been many domestic violence episodes which got thrown out because of lack of evidence or alcohol.

I seem to be doing better at it than you :)
Of course you "seem" to be doing better, you're hopelessly deluded and in an absolutely sorry state tbh.
That's why your "wife" is doing a self help course and your posts read like a 1950's propaganda article.

Have no clue what you are talking about re my wife, I know she has a lot of spare time on her hands at the moment because of the corrupt gupta company that runs visas so cant work until visa is sorted, but do you not think its a little dodge you are stalking my wife on facebook? Creep.

He stalks my wife, total creep.

Anyways, I dont dislike Russia, if I disliked Russia I wouldnt care about them. I kinda have a soft spot for the Russian people and I cant wait for the day they stop picking leaders that makes them look like theyre trying to over compensate. The time of strong men in Russia has to come to an end, the time of wise men needs to come. Might no longer equals right. Just some cultures are behind in that thinking. I kinda know that when Russia becomes a democracy, they have brilliant people and will shine. They will lead through deed and not by forcing people to follow them out of fear.

I really really hope I live to see that day.

Putin on the other hand, is different. I both admire his ability and oppose his evil. He is the richest, most powerful human ever, and few people realize this. Also probably the smartest world leader. But he gives no ****s about Russians, but he does know how to manipulate Russians into believing he is only for Russia. If you wanna learn how to stoke nationalism to push through corrupt ideals. He is the master.

I personally LOVE Putin,

One needs to understand how those people in the USSR and now Russia are being brought up. It's not them it's the system. Sure they might move to be more Capitalist in a couple of decades/centuries, but this is what they know, and Putin as much as the world would like to hate him has done AWAMZING things for the Russian people, sure maybe not all of them, but the Russian people seem to love him, so he must be doing something right.
