As Russia prepares to celebrate the defeat of the Nazis, many young people have fallen under the influence of the ideas their predecessors had died resisting. RT looked more closely at the issue of neo-Nazism in the country.
A call is mounting in Russia to introduce chemical castration for pedophiles. Activists say the current laws are slack and allow criminals to re-offend. But there are those who believe castration is far from a quick fix to such a complex problem.

The Investigation Committee of Russia has suggested chemical castration for pedophiles. The Public Chamber supported the suggestion, while expressing indignation over the lenient terms pedophiles are currently receiving.
