President Vladimir Putin has signed off on tougher anti-terrorism laws ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics that could oblige relatives to pay for any damage caused by militants fighting a separatist campaign in southern Russia.

The new law, which Putin signed on Nov. 2, according to documents published on Sunday on the Russian authorities' legal website, introduces prison terms of up to 10 years for undergoing training "aimed at carrying out terrorist activity."

"Compensation for damage... caused as a result of a terrorist act is covered... with the means of the person that committed a terrorist act, and also the means of close relatives, relatives and close acquaintances if... they obtained money, valuables and other property as a result of terrorist activity," the law also said.

The law, originally proposed to the parliament by the Kremlin, also allows for the seizure of property of relatives and close acquaintances of suspected militants if they fail to provide documents proving their rightful acquisition.

My friends outraged. They say in Krasnodar in hunting shops stopped selling gunpowder! This is ridiculous... Actually this is a purely Russian. As we say "If you ask the fool to pray to God, so he and forehead itself breaks". The law required, but the fulfillment of the law simply idiotic

Of course. No sane terrorist would not be using the powder.
