Regulations planned by the government also make it easier to organize mass and, at the same time, spontaneous demonstrations. Additionally, aggressive people detained during the demonstration are to stay at the police station for a maximum of two hours.

Opponents of the new regulations criticize them for being too lenient towards participants in violent protests. They indicate that the new law provides for the abolition of fixed amounts of fines for crimes committed during rallies, and the penalties are to be calculated on the basis of the annual earnings of the convicted demonstrator.
