All 143 members of the
Federation Council present voted to support the bill, which has caused
wide-spread controversy. Some top government officials, including the
foreign minister, have spoken flatly against the bill, arguing that the

The
bill is one part of a larger measure by angry lawmakers retaliating
against a recently signed U.S. law that calls for sanctions against Russians deemed to be human rights violators. Putin hasn’t committed to signing the bill, but has referred to it as a legitimate response to the new U.S. law.

Several
people with posters protesting the bill were detained outside the
Council Wednesday morning. “Children get frozen in the Cold War,” one
poster read.
