First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich proposes to toughen liability for «telephone terrorism» (a false report of a terrorist attack) in Russia from 5 to 8 years of imprisonment.

«We must significantly increase criminal liability for such crimes. Now the maximum punishment for «telephone terrorism» is five years of imprisonment, but it is, apparently, the little one stops. This bar should be raised to at least eight years», — said Klintsevich reporters on Tuesday, noting that «it is necessary to discourage to engage in telephone terrorism.»

On Tuesday, anonymous calls about mining of buildings enrolled in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Magadan, Vladivostok and Perm.

The Senator believes that the anonymous calls in the major cities of Russia can hardly some «secret society» that seeks to sow panic among the population. «I think we have the same situation in his time with the arson of cars in Moscow. One, the second not disclosed the offence causes another, multiplying the number of people who want to play on other people’s nerves», he said.

The MP is convinced that «the reaction of the relevant authorities should immediately follow» and «phone terrorists» should be calculated. «You need to start a resolute fight against this evil. Telephone terrorists not only inflict serious material damage, but also play into the hands of these terrorists, who are most comfortable working conditions of panic,» — said Klintsevich.

He also noted that he doesn’t remember any serious process «on thrill». «At least they were quiet when as in these cases it is especially necessary publicity», — concluded the Senator.
