Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law toughening administrative responsibility for unauthorized entry into state facilities. Now, a violation is punishable by a fine in the amount of 5,000 rubles to 10,000 rubles, compulsory work for a period of 40 to 60 hours, or administrative arrest for a period of up to 10 days.
Previously, administrative liability for penetration into such facilities was not provided.
We are talking about the protected objects of the Russian Guard, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Foreign Intelligence Service, the FSB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, institutions of the penitentiary system of the Russian Federation, or objects assigned to the authority of the authority in the field of mobilization training and mobilization.

Compulsory work for a period of 60 to 120 hours or administrative arrest for a period of up to 15 days may also be assigned for such an offense. Previously, fines and administrative arrest were provided only for unauthorized entry into a protected underground or underwater facility.
