State Duma Deputy Maria Butina has proposed jailing parents for using VPN services by their children. She expressed this opinion during a debate with TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov on the air of his program on the Russia 1 TV channel.

The program discussed the advisability of blocking the American YouTube video hosting in Russia. Maria Butina said that it is necessary to do this. Vladimir Solovyov objected that in this case “we will lose the children.” Butina offered to recommend that they read books in return.

“They won’t read books! They will install a VPN. Because the practice of “Train, stop! One-two!” does not work if you cannot offer them a better product, ”said the TV presenter.

After that, Butina suggested jailing parents whose children use VPNs if they fail to restrict their children.
