The bill "On Amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation" involves the introduction of a new article - "Walking potentially dangerous breeds of dogs without a muzzle and a leash in public places."

It is noted that now such a law is valid only in some regions of the country.

The explanatory note to the novel says that more than 42,000 cases of dog attacks on people have been recorded this year.
