Russian NWF funds will be used to save foreign companies


Despite the fact that Russia has not yet reached a plateau due to coronavirus disease, President Putin decided to gradually withdraw the country from the regime of so-called “self-isolation”. Decision forced: a month and a half of "quarantine" inflicted the economy colossal damage, the scale of which has yet to be clarified. The continuation of the heroic sitting at home threatens a complete collapse of the entire social and economic sphere.


In fact, we fell into the abyss and it is not clear whether we are already at the bottom, or are still flying. But now it’s clear that “not only everything” will be selected from it.

Now the main question is how and what the NWF reserves will be spent on, which, according to previous statements by the authorities, should be enough for six years. There are vague doubts about the latter, despite the fact that about 11 trillion rubles are stored in the piggy bank.

Small business


Even visually it is clear that things are going badly in this sector of the economy. On the streets of cities above the entrance to many shops, hairdressers, canteens, sports clubs and travel agencies that are closed due to a pandemic, the signs “Rent” and “Sale” now hang. With this, everything is simple: no one has canceled the rent, wages and taxes must be paid, but there are no customers. Someone immediately closed, realizing that they could not make ends meet, others were trying to hold out, transferring employees to unpaid leave. According to the regional chambers of commerce and industry, about 58% of small businesses were unable to receive the “coronavirus” benefits promised by President Putin.

With all this, consumer demand is falling: the Russians are “resting” without work and without money, since not everyone was lucky to work in the public sector. Many are forced to work in “gray” and “black”, therefore they cannot count on any compensation. By the way, we note the government’s “care” about its citizens: from July 1, the tax authorities will put their hands on money transfers by bank cards, apparently in order to finally “finish off” small business and the population in rubles.

Big business


Against this background, the list of enterprises that will receive state support looks extremely cynical. Only after the intervention of the General Prosecutor’s Office was the bookmaker Fonbet removed from it. But excuse me, but how did she get there at all? However, guessing is not so difficult. We go further. Let us ask ourselves how appropriate it is to be in this list of franchises of American companies McDonald's and Burger King? Yes, they work in Russia, but the owners who claim to preserve their restaurant business at the expense of the domestic NWF are located in the USA. Speaking on this topic, you can go very far.

For example, Rusal is counting on state support. It seems to be all right, this is a major taxpayer and employer, but let's recall that recently the West has seized control of this company as a result of a "raider seizure" with the support of the US Treasury. Now the giant of non-ferrous metallurgy is managed by the British Lord Barkley, and in the USA, a new aluminum plant is being built with the corporation's profitable money.

Back to the list. One of the first in it is AvtoVAZ JSC. The main shareholder of the car company is Alliance Rostec Auto BV, registered in the Netherlands. 75% of it belongs to Renault, 25% to Rostec. Next to the list of companies applying for state support are Volkswagen Group Rus LLC, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Rus LLC, Nissan Manufecuring Rus LLC, Toyota Motor LLC, PSMA RUS LLC, Renault Russia CJSC and etc. Whatever you shove, these are foreign companies operating in Russia, or companies with foreign participation. And this suggests the following thought.

RBC Agency was ranking 500 largest revenue companies operating in our country. It will be useful for all curious people to see to what extent foreign capital controls the leading companies in the domestic economy. It turns out that after the coronavirus pandemic, the already modest share of small businesses will decrease even more, while large ones with state support will grow.

    If people receive their salaries in envelopes, how do you order them to issue compensation? On my word of honor? Or just throw money from helicopters? In the United States, which are constantly being cited as an example, they say, 1 bucks were handed out to everyone indiscriminately, the real amount is actually calculated on the basis of last year's tax return. Of course, people will have a hard time, but I don’t see a real mechanism of "fair" distribution of aid. From the point of view of the "state machine", this sector does not exist, it does not fall into the field of its activity.

    By the way, we note the government’s “care” about its citizens: from July 1, the tax authorities will put their hands on money transfers by bank cards, apparently in order to finally “finish off” small business and the population in rubles.

    Someone will finish off, someone will work "in white". Paradoxically, as a result, the share of small businesses will grow. Undoubtedly, many will close, but some of the "survivors" will go to the white scheme. Since those who work "in the black" were not included in the statistics, growth will be necessary. Nobody knows for certain how many small and medium-sized businesses work according to the gray and black scheme; I have come across estimates of 25% or more.

    Let us ask ourselves how appropriate it is to be in this list of franchises of American companies McDonald's and Burger King?

    That's for sure, you can go far yes But is it worth it? They help to keep the business, these are taxes, jobs, contribution to GDP. Why in this situation a homegrown bourgeois is better than an imported one, I personally do not understand.

      No "paradox", everything is natural. It's just that this business will close and that's it. Or he will cut the salaries of his employees, for which they will thank the tax authorities very much.

        Some will close, but the majority will remain, many are avoiding taxes not because of lack of profitability, but rather because of greed or out of habit. As they started in the 90s, they continue as long as possible. Soon there will be practically no conditions for this. During the quarantine period, financial flows could be perfectly tracked. A month in "silence mode" is a great opportunity to see who is translating where and how much. All settlements in the near future will be transferred to the non-cash sphere. It will become very uncomfortable to work in "black and gray".

        Or cut the salaries of their employees, for which they will say many thanks to the tax.

        Very strange position. belay The bourgeois cuts the salary, and the tax is to blame? Why not immediately Putin? Maybe they will cut the employer's back into shreds or send a bottle of "Molotov cocktail" through the window of the enterprise as a thank you? I hope it will not go to the extreme, but the "upset" employees will probably merge information about the company's activities with the tax authorities. yes

    In general, according to the author, the state is obliged to protect small businesses that worked without registration and poor workers who worked in black, in general, neither one nor the other did not pay taxes. They thought to live happily ever after, and here - a virus, a crisis and "help us". Russian divisions, foreign companies paid taxes, and receive preferences only those who retain at least 90% of jobs, and those who have already laid off more workers and have nothing to count on. I will not speak about unregistered applicants, the question is as old as the world, it was their choice, I made it this way in my time. And still it would be necessary to declare a state of emergency in order to allow "honest" business to dismiss workers without problems, because the state of emergency is force majeure, under which all contracts can be painlessly terminated.

    Ehh, well, even hands down to comment on another masterpiece. Well, you can simply find out how the "Franchise" works. These are small entrepreneurs who pay to use the logo and other developments of the company.

      I know how the franchise works. And who are paid royalties.
      The list does not say anything about individual entrepreneurs working under a franchise. It has been said about the McDonald's head office.

        Ahh, yes, for Seryozhenka, they must list all those employed in the Franchise. Why didn’t you tell about the fact that the action “free lunch for doctors” is not being carried out. Oh yeah, this is not part of the plans of your .. article. How should journalism be objective? And yes. How are there threats - to poke our nose for an article about Nord Stream-2, allegedly that it will not be completed)))

    With Marzhetsky, that in the minus, everything is colossal. Only colossal damage was caused not to Russia, but to the entire world economy. Russia has suffered less than others. The Saudis, whom Marzhetsky named the winners in the oil war with Russia, have fallen in production even below their allotted limits, while Russia maintains production volumes and has a good price for its oil. The Saudis are forced to abolish subsidies to their low-income citizens, which is about a third of the population, and Russia announced new preferences for families with children, and small businesses, and medium and large businesses, with the condition of preserving jobs, and this is also help, primarily to the workers of these enterprises, no matter what proportion of foreign investors participate in these enterprises. The Saudis raised the VAT THREE times, and in Russia the Central Bank once again lowered the key rate to 5,5 percent, which speaks of the good state of the Russian financial system and the economy as a whole. But Mr. Marzhetsky convinces everyone that everything in Russia is "GREAT" bad. In a word, the author once again confirmed his amateurism.

      I don’t want to talk about all the nonsense, but the phrase with capital letters was especially amusing -

      The Saudis raised VAT three times ...

      Here it is necessary, as in that saying about the dead — either good or nothing but the truth.

      VAT in this country was introduced only two years ago in an attempt to reduce the dependence of the country's economy on world crude oil prices.
      According to the new rules, from July 1, VAT will increase from 5% to 15%.

      https://www.bbc.com/russian/news-52614555

      Well, about the key rate of 1% versus 5,5% in Russia, and everything else ...

    We will find out who suffered more later. Here you cannot hide yourself with just words. But I think that the state’s attitude to small business is initially wrong. This was noticeable even before the pandemic. When officials are given the right to decide who to stay in the world and who not, this is fundamentally wrong.

      Here they are white, and here they’re black, here is small business, and here state employees (by the way, the overwhelming majority of them are teachers, doctors, military) must pay taxes, and here investors who owe nothing to anyone - the law is the same for everyone, if you got tax breaks are one thing, but if you don’t stupidly register, so as not to pay, then another. If lawmakers are not happy with you, come and re-select them.
