Recently, we are actively campaigning for the liberalization of laws on economic crimes, making the layman considered that the current situation in Russia today unusually cruel. But is it? For comparison, take America-mother. Here are a few examples of recent high-profile cases:
2000. Keith Pound — co-defendant Shalom — 700 years in prison.
2008. Managing an investment fund with a talking surname
