Alshevskikh is a co-author of several bills restricting the rights and freedom of citizens, in particular:
● Bill No. 1165649-7
On Amending Article 4 of the Federal Law”On Basic Guarantees of Electoral Rights and the Right to Participate in a Referendum of Citizens of the Russian Federation” and Article 4 of the Federal Law “On Elections of Deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation” (in terms of limiting the passive electoral right of persons involved in the activities of extremist or terrorist organizations). These bills restrict the constitutional right to be elected in relation to citizens recognized as extremists on the basis of politically motivated court decisions.
● Bill No. 1057895-7
On Amending the Federal Law “On Education in the Russian Federation” (in terms of conducting educational activities). It limits the freedom of scientific creativity and teaching guaranteed by the Constitution, as well as freedom of thought and speech, delegating to the Government the functions of control over educational activities. By equating some forms of educational activities with “anti-Russian propaganda,” the draft law makes it possible to hinder the implementation of such activities for political reasons.
● Bill No. 1057892-7
On Amending certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation (in terms of clarifying the rights and obligations of subjects performing the functions of a foreign agent). It restricts the constitutional right of equal access to public service and the right to be elected for some candidates running for elections, recognizing them as “foreign agents” for political reasons and obliging them to indicate this information publicly, which may entail reputational risks.
