By tradition, packages of new laws come into force in Russia on January 1 of the new year. In particular, the deputies tried to finalize the previous bills and make life easier for Russians from the first days of 2023.

The new bills, which entered into force on January 1, 2023, were reported by the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

The term for the St. George ribbon

The deputies determined the procedure for using the St. George ribbon. It can be used during public celebrations dedicated to Victory Day or where the goal is to perpetuate the memory of Russian soldiers. They were allowed to wear it both at patriotic events and at “other” ones (which ones are not specified specifically).

The law does not describe how and on what you can wear a St. George ribbon. But the responsibility for the public desecration of the tape has been determined. I will punish the Russians as for the public desecration of other symbols of military glory of Russia.

The violator may face a fine of up to 3 million rubles or imprisonment for up to 3 years.

Innovations for judges

The procedure for holding court sessions of the first instance via videoconference is also prescribed. In a remote format, it will be possible to hold a meeting to choose a preventive measure for the detainee. The judge himself, the defendant, and his lawyers can ask for a similar format of the meeting.

Putin allowed unfriendly countries to pay the debt for gas in currency

Putin allowed unfriendly countries to pay gas debt in currency

The decree on this was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree allowing Russian gas suppliers for unfriendly countries to accept payment of debts for fuel supplies in foreign currency.

The amendments were included in the Decree “On the Special Procedure for the Fulfillment of Obligations by Foreign Buyers to Russian Natural Gas Suppliers ”.

As reported in the document posted on the legal information portal, a special account will be created to accept settlements.

It will be opened in foreign currency, which was previously specified in the contract for the supply of fuel – natural gas.

At the same time, the fact of accepting payments in foreign currency will not be the basis for changing the payment procedure, which requires paying for gas supplies in rubles. And it is not a reason to renew contracts on the old terms.

Recall that the introduction of ruble payments was approved in Russia in March 2022 and came into force in April.

The conditions affected states unfriendly to Russia, which expressed disagreement with Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

After the introduction of new conditions, a number of them refused Russian fuel.

However, already in June of this year, as reported by ROFILE.RU, most of Gazprom’s customers have switched to the ruble payment scheme.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that in early December, Uzbekistan rejected the idea of a gas deal with Russia and Kazakhstan.

Bloomberg: Elon Musk became the first person to lose $200 billion

Bloomberg: Elon Musk became the first person to lose $200 billion

The publication reports how the leading manufacturer of electric vehicles is experiencing the end of 2022.

Bloomberg reported that billionaire Elon Musk became the first person in history to lose $200 billion.

The reason for such a drop in the American’s fortune, the publication calls a sharp decline in the value of shares of the Tesla car manufacturing company. So, Musk lost $85 billion of the company’s capitalization in a week.

It is known that the maximum of Elon Musk’s fortune was $ 340 billion, it peaked on November 21 last year. Now it is $137 billion.

According to the calculations of the agency’s analysts, in the last days of December, Tesla lost $ 85 billion in price, and the level of the company’s market capitalization dropped to $ 390 billion.

During 2022, the firm’s price has tripled, from $1.2 trillion in January. Analysts attribute this to the intention to sell part of the company’s shares to Musk, who did it for the purchase of the social network Twitter.

The second factor was anxiety and doubts about the future of electric vehicles on the part of investors who felt that Musk was not paying enough attention to the business, although competition was growing.

Recall that the sale of shares, including 22 million, was carried out by Musk in mid-December. The price ranged from $156 to $176 apiece, and the total revenue was $3.6 billion.

In addition, on December 22, Tesla shares fell to $129 when the company offered discounts of $7,500 on Model 3 and Model Y electric cars. Musk eventually said that he would not sell shares for two years until the recession period ends in 2023, according to RBC,

Elon Musk took second place with a fortune of $146 billion, losing the leading position to the head of LVMH Bernard Arnault and his family ($179 billion) according to Forbes.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Elon Musk summed up the results of the survey on leaving the post of head of Twitter.

Russians will be obliged to pay tax on deposits by the end of 2023

Russians will be obliged to pay tax on deposits by the end of 2023

“Izvestia” found out how the new gratuitous fee will be calculated.

Russians in the new year, 2023, will have to pay tax on income from deposits for the first time.

Thus, interest income in the amount of 75,000 per year will fall under the new gratuitous payment. The condition will be the key rate, which should not exceed 7.5% as at the moment.

As “Izvestia” writes, the tax will be levied at the rate of 13%, and charged depending on the key rate. The calculation of the maximum interest income that will not be taxed will also change.

Previously, in order to calculate its amount, it was necessary to multiply 1 million rubles by the level of the key rate at the beginning of the year. Now, when calculating the key rate indicator, it will be taken into account for the entire year.

As a result, according to experts of the publication, Russians will pay for the income received in 2023 until December 2024.

The second change: when calculating the tax, not the amount of deposits will be taken into account, but only the income received by the citizen.

Recall that the initiator of the new tax in 2020 was the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. The first payment of the new tax was supposed to take place this year, but the authorities exempted Russians from paying against the background of the current economic situation.

As Topnews wrote in January of this year, the deposit tax will affect Russians with deposits of 700,000 rubles.

Foreign Affairs: Russia and China put an end to the era of US economic sanctions

Foreign Affairs: Russia and China put an end to the era of US economic sanctions

The publication reported how the favorite instrument of the USA was leveled.

The authors of the American edition of Foreign Affairs, after analyzing the results of US sanctions against Russia and China, stated that the latter had won over the favorite tool of the United States.

According to Agatha Demare, Director of Global forecasting at the Economist Intelligence Unit international research Center in London, the US has lost its favorite economic weapon in the economic war, and the era of sanctions is coming to an end.

She called the reason “permissiveness”, which was demonstrated by the US authorities in using these “punitive measures ”. According to Demare, she “caused the resistance of the world ”.

To prove her point of view, she cited three convincing responses from Beijing and Moscow to Washington’s sanctions.

First of all, they included the creation of bilateral currency swaps. So China and Russia were able not to use the US dollar in the calculations.

The second was the appearance of non-Western payment systems. China has its own alternative version of SWIFT CIPS, which is already used by over 1,300 banks from more than a hundred countries. Both Russia and China will have a worthy response to sanctions in this area, the analyst believes.

The third measure Demare called the introduction of a digital currency, which is protected from sanctions. She explained that Washington cannot restrict the use of virtual means of payment, which are issued by credit institutions of other countries.

China has become a leader in this field, the digital yuan is already used by over 300 million residents of the country in twenty cities, including the megacities of Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Demare, analyzing what happened, points out that the fact that the United States followed only its own interests in the measures, using restrictive measures as a weapon, caused a protest from the world community, and the US dollar was deleted from the monetary exchange of the two countries.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Russian President Vladimir Putin told a joke about Western sanctions against Russia.

Putin banned the export of Russian oil on the price ceiling from February 1

The Russian response to Western sanctions on fuel transportation has become known.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a decree banning the supply of Russian oil under the price ceiling. The document, which is posted on the legal information portal, indicates that the ban comes into force on February 1, 2023.

As RIA Novosti clarifies, the total validity of the decree is limited to July 1 next year. In particular, oil and its derivatives cannot be sold if the price ceiling is a condition for sales.

Special measures are being taken in connection with the setting of the price limit for Russian oil by a number of countries.

It is known that Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak previously announced Russia’s response to Western oil sanctions.

He explained that it is planned to ban the supply of fuel to countries and legal entities that will specify price restrictions within the framework of contracts.

Russia is ready to reduce oil production, he explained, in the amount of 5 – 7% already at the beginning of 2023.

Recall that the EU sanctions came into force on December 5. The Commonwealth has imposed a ban on Russian oil supplies by sea, in addition, the G7, the EU and Australia have introduced prices for fuel supplied by sea in the amount of $ 60 per 1 barrel.

More expensive fuel cannot be transported or insured.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that Vladimir Putin appointed Dmitry Medvedev to a new position.

The State Duma told which of the Russians who left will be affected by the tax increase

The State Duma told which of the Russians who left will be affected by the tax increase

The initiative of Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin is supported by the State Duma.

The deputy chairman of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, Andrei Isaev, explained the amendments to the tax legislation that will affect the citizens of the country who left Russia.

In an interview with Interfax, he said that the changes will affect the self-employment regime, which will be canceled for this category of Russians.

The same will happen with individual entrepreneurs who have gone abroad, who will lose the right to preferential tax treatment.

The expert explained that now the self-employed actually pay a tax of 4-6%, the amount of which differs depending on the recipient of the services of individuals or legal entities. At the same time, individual entrepreneurs use a simplified taxation system with a preferential rate.

Recall that the USN can be used by sole proprietors whose income does not exceed 150 million rubles, with no more than a hundred employees.

Isaev explained that in order not to be abused by Russians who went abroad, at the suggestion of State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, the preferential regime was canceled.

The amendments indicate that self-employed citizens who have left the country must enroll in one of two options. In the first, they conclude an employment contract and, accordingly, pay more tax.

The second option is to register as an individual entrepreneur without benefits for this category.

As Topnews wrote earlier, the amendments were announced by the speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin. He stated that the above changes to the Tax Code are fair.

Recall that personal income tax for non-residents is 30%. To be included in the composition of residents of the Russian Federation, you need to stay in Russia for at least 183 days.

“They betrayed their country, relatives and friends”: Volodin announced an increase in taxes for Russians who left the Russian Federation with the beginning of their

“Betrayed their country, relatives and friends”: Volodin announced a tax increase for Russians who left the Russian Federation with the beginning of their own

The idea of the speaker of the State Duma was supported by the Federation Council.

According to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, the lower house of parliament is already working on amendments to the law, according to which higher tax rates will be applied for Russians who have left Russia.

Volodin is sure that “it will be fair”.

He believes that those who realized that they had made a mistake have already returned to their homeland.

The speaker of the State Duma wrote about this in his Telegram.

“The rest should understand: the overwhelming part of society does not support their act – believes that they betrayed their country, relatives and friends <…> It is right to cancel preferences for those who left the Russian Federation and introduce an increased tax rate for them. So it will be fair”, – he noted.

According to him, the overwhelming part of society does not support the Russians who have left and considers such people traitors.

Nevertheless, for the time being, people who have left Russia can work remotely in Russian companies and enjoy benefits according to the laws of Russia.

Now, no benefits are expected for them.

“ But until today, those who have left not only work in Russian companies remotely, but also enjoy all the benefits that it gives them in accordance with the legislation of our country, ”, – wrote Vyacheslav Volodin.

According to Senator Sergey Tsekov, the introduction of an increased tax rate for Russians who have left can be quickly adopted if a consensus is reached on this issue.

“To escape abroad, but at the same time continue to enjoy the benefits provided by the Russian state, is fundamentally wrong, ”, – said a member of the Federation Council.

He stressed that Russians need to continue to contribute to the development of their country.

Recall that last November, the head of the Ministry of Finance Anton Siluanov said that the department is thinking about maintaining personal income tax for Russians who have left at the level of 13%.

Earlier, topNews wrote that Volodin announced a ban on surrogacy for foreigners.

It is expected that the bill will be adopted in the very near future.
