Additions

 

(pripiski), in Soviet criminal law, a type of official forgery that involves deliberate distortion by an official of accounting data concerning the fulfillment of plans in state accounts, for example, increasing the percentage of fulfillment of the plan over and above actual fulfillment. Liability for additions was set by a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated May 24, 1961 (Vedomosti Verkhovnogo Soveta SSR, 1961, no. 22, p. 225), which emphasized the special danger of additions as an antistate action that harms the national economy of the USSR. Corresponding provisions are found in the criminal codes of the Union republics, for example, in Article 152–1 of the Criminal Code of the RSFSR. The crime is punishable by deprivation of freedom for up to three years.
