The State Duma of the Russian Federation passed a new bill at the second reading. This bill increases the term of detention without charge or trial for detainees suspected of implication in terrorism, during investigation of a number of crimes, including cyber terrorism, from 10 to 30 days. Such amendments are offered to be made to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

This amendment envisages also some innovations. Prosecutors will have to consider "gravity of offence, personality data on the person being brought to trial, his age, state of health, civil status, occupation and other characteristics".
