Non-compliance with the rules concerning these mass events, individuals shall be fined from AZN 300 to 500 or sentenced to administrative arrest up to 30 days depending on the circumstances and the personality of the offender.

Officials, on the other hand, shall be fined from AZN 600 to 900, while legal entities shall be fined from AZN 4,000 to 6,000.
