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.

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.

Western airlines suddenly wanted to fly through Russia

Western airlines suddenly wanted to fly through Russia

Analysts named the reason for the sudden lobby in the EU and the USA.

Information has appeared on the Web that a number of American airlines are in favor of lifting sanctions prohibiting the passage of civil aviation through the airspace of the Russian Federation.

According to the Telegram channel MMI, the same opinion is shared by air carriers from Europe. The reason, according to the authors, is the inefficiency of the flyby path.

Thus, according to the FlightRadar24 service, the dynamics of the air passenger market has reached the indicators of 2020.

The head of the International Air Transport Association, William Walsh, said that air carriers need to prepare for the fact that flights through the Russian Federation will resume, otherwise companies from Europe will lose to colleagues from China, who do not need to fly around the territory of the Russian Federation.

With the lifting of sanctions, Europeans will be able to get to Asia in the most efficient way, he explained.

Recall that the airspace of the Russian Federation has led to obvious losses. Thus, German Lufthansa lost to Turkish Airlines in terms of market capitalization of 9.27 billion euros against 9.78 billion euros.

At the same time Rostransnadzor called for an audit for foreign airlines before admission to flights to the Russian Federation.

Similar rules already work in the EU, the USA, China, Israel, the UK and a number of other countries.

Topnews wrote that in Russia it was proposed to remove passengers from flights with overloaded luggage in hand luggage.

The yacht of billionaire Mazepin, which fell under sanctions, disappeared in Sardinia

Insiders suggest that the businessman “hijacked” his own ship.

British media reported the loss of the luxury yacht of Russian billionaire Dmitry Mazepin. Earlier, in Italian Sardinia, the Aldabara was detained in the port of Olbia – a 22-meter sea vessel, whose cost is estimated from 700 thousand to 1 million euros.

The Guardian reports that the yacht was arrested in Sardinia after the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions. Mazepin was placed on the sanctions list.

The yacht was parked in March, while official evidence was being prepared that it belonged to a Russian.

In June – a few hours before the announcement of her belonging to Mazepin – the yacht disappeared.

A source in Sardinian law enforcement agencies reported that Dmitry Mazepin belongs to the missing yacht.

“Mazepin knew that he was on the list, but managed to make the most of the period during which we worked to establish that the boat belongs to him,” insiders reported.

Police officers believe that an oligarch from Russia could have hired a foreign company and made a deal with the captain. It was he who overtook the vehicle. It is known that the yacht made a stop in Tunisia, and there is no data on where the ship is now.

According to media reports, Mazepin, the company and the captain face a fine of 500 thousand euros.

By the way, The Guardian has not officially provided data that the yacht belongs to Mazepin.
