ST. PETERSBURG, August 3 (RAPSI) - A group of the Communist Party lawmakers on Wednesday submitted a bill banning state servants, judges and certain officials from security, law enforcement and defense agencies from owning property in the NATO states and countries-candidates for the alliance accession to the State Duma.

The draft law also extends the proibition to the abovementioned officials' spouses and minor children.

Such officials who have property in the unfriendly NATO countries must stop using it after the document comes into force and dispose it within three months
