Kiselev recalled that Putin did not support the death penalty

He recalled that during a direct line in 2013, shortly after the brutal murder of six people in Belgorod, Putin spoke about the death penalty, emphasizing that “experts believe that the toughening of punishment itself does not lead to its eradication, to a decrease in the crime rate.” Then the president gave an example that in the Roman Empire, pickpocketing was punishable by death, and most thefts occurred during these executions, because most people gathered in the squares.
