So they decided to cut short wait for amendments. According to
http://sozd.parliament.gov.ru/bill/452878-7 the bill is already
approved by the State Duma and now is in the Federation Council.
Looks like no amendments were made.

The bill will likely be approved by the Federation Council on
2018-10-03, then signed by the President and published into law on
2018-10-08 +/- few days.

No amendments are possible unless the bill is rejected by the
Federation Council or by the President.
