When Will the USA Protect its Citizens?
Earlier this year, Russian lawmakers were considering equating GMO-related activities to a terrorist act or death threat, a criminal act that Russia says deserves the punishment which killers and creators of mass ecological and human genocide deserve. Now, Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially signed the Russian Federation Code of Administrative Offences into law, which includes an article establishing that anyone violating mandatory requirements for the labeling of food products that contain GMOs be punished by law.
According to the new law, any individual breaking the law could be fined up to 50,000 rubles ($890), while any business entities in violation could be fined up to 150,000 rubles (over $5,300). These fines are virtually non-existent for big companies operating on a grander scale to provide the public with toxic, GMO-laden foods, but there is more to the punishment than simple fines.
