In Russia the law which will allow to receive compensation of moral harm to owners of the pets who lost the favourites as a result of someone's malicious actions is drafted. As one of authors of an initiative Dmitry Guliyev entering into Chamber of young legislators at the Federation Council, now in this sphere in Russia a huge legal gap told. Our judicial authorities refuse to award compensation of moral harm in case of death of pets, SakhalinMedia news Agency with reference to Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports.
According to the lawyer Irina Fast, in the present Russian legislation pets are actually carried to property and is not registered anywhere that their loss demands compensation of moral harm. In the Civil Code of the Russian Federation it is told that the general rules about property are applied to pets. And compensation for causing moral harm is paid when the non-material benefits are restrained or destroyed. In this plan Russia appears very far from civilized countries where dogs, for example, can be successors of the died millionaire, that is have the property benefits and the rights, along with people.
Dmitry Guliyev is sure that needs to be defined directly in the law when compensation of moral harm to owners of victims or dead of animals can be made. The bill is planned to be submitted for consideration of the State Duma of the Russian Federation through one of regional parliaments.
