Russia

A bill aimed at controlling plastic surgery, including sex reassignment surgery (SRS), was developed by members of Russian Communist Party, Nezavisimaya Gazeta reports. The authors call for the creation of a registry of people who changed their appearance, including perceived gender, and other parts of the body. The registry may contain photos of the person before and after operation, description of body modifications and even reasons for them. The surgeons who conceal the fact of operations will have to pay a fine of 300,000 rubles (~ 8,300 USD), and in case their patient commits a crime, they may go to jail for five years. The bill will be introduced into the State Duma in May.
