Putin Considers Chemical Castration for Child Sex Offenders

A Pro-Putin Political Party Has produced New Legislation Which is Under Review


Putin is contemplating the introduction of forced chemical castration for paedophiles, mirroring a practice already in place in neighboring Kazakhstan.
The initiative comes from a pro-Putin political party in Moscow, with the proposal currently being assessed by the government.

Belarus, a close Russian ally, has already implemented this castration technique for convicted child molesters.

The ultranationalist Liberal Democratic Party argues that existing laws in Russia have proven inadequate in curbing the growing incidents of paedophilic attacks on minors.

A particularly heinous incident reported last month involved a man, known only as Sergei Sh, allegedly attacking two young girls aged ten and twelve.

Sergei Sh, returning from service in Putin’s conflict in Ukraine, reportedly donned his Wagner mercenary uniform during the assault

He intimidated the girls with threats of a grenade explosion, assaulted them behind some garages, and was later identified by his military attire and Wagner insignia.

The proposed legislation would require convicted paedophiles to undergo mandatory chemical injections in the months leading up to their release. These injections are designed to suppress male sexual urges.

The rationale behind the legislation, as explained in a report, is that “the current measures against such heinous crimes are falling short. Incidents are on the rise, and many offenders re-offend after their release.”

Russian MP Boris Chernyshov voiced his support for the proposal, urging for the “enforced administration of substances to curb sexual urges either temporarily or permanently.” He also suggested that Russia could learn from the approaches of other nations.

In recent years, Kazakhstan has employed a regime of forced castration for paedophiles. Belarus, known for its authoritarian rule, has introduced similar regulations.

An unfortunate case from Kazakhstan involved a man, Berik Zholdasov, who faced castration after being found guilty of sexually assaulting his young stepdaughter so grievously that she had to undergo a hysterectomy.

An advocate for this method in Kazakhstan, Zoya Manaenko, a 69-year-old nurse in a prison hospital, argues that Western countries might also benefit from adopting this strategy.

She insists that such offenders “must be halted by any means” due to their heinous crimes against minors, validating the legislation.

Media in Kazakhstan has featured convicted paedophiles expressing their regret post-castration. One individual noted the detrimental impact on his health, while another expressed remorse over his crimes.

Kazakhstan is currently revising its approach to chemically castrate offenders closer to their release rather than throughout their entire imprisonment.
