The 'Russian News Service' has reported that The St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly, which famously passed a controversial law banning public displays of gay propaganda to protect minors, is now in its 2nd reading of some new amendments to the law "On Administrative Offences."

The amendments will ban several noises late at night including knocks, moving furniture, loud snoring, and "stomping cats," loud groans or moans, and squeaks. The last two banned noises were approved by MPs at a meeting held earlier on Wednesday. St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko is the sponsor of the bill.

In addition, according to the law, dogs are prohibited from howling at night.

A Russian News Service correspondent reported that the MPs did not specify how violators of the peace are to be punished.
