Satanism and the propaganda of it should be included in the state’s official list of information that is harmful for childhood development, a Russian Church committee proposes.

Fr. Feodor Lukyanov, the chairman of the Patriarchal Commission on Family Issues and the Protection of Motherhood and Childhood, also called for the creation of a State Duma working group to develop a regulatory framework to counter the spread of such content, reports

In December, the State Duma adopted a bill in the first reading according to which the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) can get the authority to set requirements for experts conducting an examination of information products for children.

Earlier this month, Vladimir Legoida, the head of the Synodal Department for Relations Between the Church and Society and the Media, called for the Ministry of Culture to include faith in God in its list of traditional values.

In April 2017, two Satanist parents, angered by the secret Baptism of their children, announced plans to launch a petition to stop the Russian Church from baptizing any children under the age of 14.

The Satanic Church of Russia has been officially operating in Moscow since 2016. In October 2017, First Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on Public Associations and Religious Organizations Ivan Sukharev called for action to be taken against the “church” as offensive to the religious sensibilities of Russian citizens adhering to traditional faiths. According to, the organization closed down that year.

It's a good step, though modern satanism rather belongs to the list of stupid and obnoxious subcultures.
