In Russian parliament votes 380-3 to decriminalise domestic violence, it's said that there was a 380 to 3 vote in favour of a bill to decriminalise domestic violence under certain circumstances.

Who were the three who voted against it?

I looked up Wikipedia, and it mentioned the law, but not who opposed it.

According to the official parliament statistics, these three MPs opposed the bill in its third (and final) reading:

  • Nikolay Yezersky
  • Yury Sinelshchikov
  • Sergey Shargunov

All three belong to the Communist Party of Russia, which consistently opposed the bill. In fact, only one Communist MP voted in favor of the bill, while the remaining 38 party members didn't vote at all (didn't abstain, mind you - just didn't show up).
