“​GMO Producers Should be Punished as Terrorists” Says Russian Parliament

Russia has been one of the most vocal opponents of GMOs. Recently a draft of a law was submitted the Russian Parliament that would seek criminal prosecution of producers of GMOs found to be harmful to people’s health or the environment. The author of the bill compared producers of GMOs to terrorists:

“When a terrorist act is committed, only several people are usually hurt. But GMOs may hurt dozens and hundreds. The consequences are much worse. And punishment should be proportionate to the crime,” co-author Kirill Cherkasov, member of the State Duma Agriculture Committee..

According to Russian criminal code, the punishment starts with 15 years in jail and up could go all the way up to a life sentence for terrorism. Read the whole article at RT News:
