The Ministry of Transport has submitted to the State Duma a bill according to which the illegal sale of legal or fake tickets for the matches of the FIFA 2018 World Cup will be punished with a fine.
The amounts of payments vary and are provided for four categories of ticket sellers: ordinary citizens, officials, entrepreneurs and legal entities. Payments for the sale of these tickets will be from 20 to 30 times the amount of the ticket price or from 50 thousand rubles to a million in the case of legal entities
In the case of forgery, the punishment will be tougher: from 50 thousand rubles to 1.5 million or administrative suspension of activities.
It is noted that punishments are not taken from the ceiling, but were taken on the basis of the experience of the organizers of the mundiales of past years.
The document was recently approved.
