State Duma rejects constitutional amendments regarding real estate abroad

On March 5, 2020, it became known that the ban on real estate abroad for certain individuals was not included in the draft amendments to the Russian Constitution. This is allegedly due to the fact that many parliamentarians, officials and members of their families would have to abandon this property or resign from their posts.

The newspaper informed about this. "Vedomosti"referring to its sources in the State Duma and the presidential administration. At the same time, experts admit that such norms may appear later, in the form of federal law or changes in legislation.

Foreign real estate still remains, because now many have it politicians and officials. Although I think that at some point a ban on it may appear in the federal law

- explained one of the sources.

It must be recalled that before this, the relevant amendments to the legislation on the prohibition of real estate abroad were introduced by State Duma deputies Nikolai Arefyev (Communist Party) and Konstantin Slyshchenko ("United Russia"). However, they were rejected (rejected).

It should be added that in April 2013, the State Duma adopted a package of three laws prohibiting officials from having accounts and shares abroad. That is, the ban does not apply to foreign real estate of officials, although it requires its mandatory declaration and disclosure of financial sources of acquisition. This law applies to persons whose activities affect the sovereignty and security of Russia: members of the Federal Assembly, officials in state corporations (companies), foundations and other organizations acting on the basis of federal laws, the first deputy and all 13 deputy general prosecutors, members of the board of directors of the Central Bank, and also persons appointed and dismissed by the president, government or prosecutor general. In addition, the ban applies to spouses and minor children of these individuals.

It must be added that six years later (in 2019), another law was adopted in Russia. It allows the Central Bank to provide the Prosecutor General with information received from foreign regulators in the banking and financial market when the department conducts inspections on the implementation of the mentioned legislation by Russian officials (the presence of foreign accounts).

        So far this is only fake, like, one grandmother in the market told. That's when the Duma approves the amendments, then we will discuss it.

    State Duma rejects constitutional amendments regarding real estate abroad

    If so, then there is nothing to vote for these amendments at all. The only thing that could be voted for was to remove these "misplaced Cossacks", who have everything over the hill (bank accounts, apartments, houses, kids study and live there), and here they are at the helm of power. I don’t think they steered in favor of the people.

      In 1905 they surrendered and received a revolution, which in 1917 outweighed the dealers ... They want to repeat it? Flag in hand, only then let them not whine. And about the pseudo-holy king and rotten boyars ... and now it’s not worth it ...
  10. And for me, it’s better to let them go - the loss is small! A propos! Putin’s daughter with a foreign husband lives in Belgium! What's this?! What is it like?!

    "Bees against honey". Who would doubt that only the "necessary" government "amendments" will pass, and the plebs and the mention of "God" with the "Russian people" will be enough, as well as ..... "macaros" in the future. Well, the usual fairy tale-mantra for the night - "Yes, here we will accept all the" amendments to the Constitution "in one package and then, once again, we will" live. " lol

    I think there will not come a time to ban foreign real estate. If they don’t want to decide on the scale of taxes, then there’s nothing else to wait for.
