Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree pardoning 52 convicted women, it was reported on 08.03.2024 today, on the eve of International Women’s Day, TASS writes.

“When making the decision to pardon, the head of state was guided by the principles of humanity. The pardoned women are mostly those with minor children, pregnant women, and also women who have relatives participating in the special military operation,” the statement said.

Later, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov explained that the pardon was related to discussions in December at the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights (CSC), an advisory body to the Russian president. At this meeting, the issue of amnesty for certain categories of women was raised, he specified.

“Today’s decree was signed in the context of the deliberations of the CSC meeting,” Peskov said.
