The state presented a check for 100 billion rubles to Russian metallurgists

At the end of last year, Russian metallurgical companies made a big profit and now have to pay off the Russian budgets for the capital investments received earlier from the state. This opinion was expressed by the First Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Andrei Belousov in an interview RBC.

According to Belousov, last year domestic metallurgists became "several times" richer due to the rise in prices for products within the country, which followed the increase in prices on world exchanges. Budget aid also played an important role in enriching Russian concerns.

We figured that ... metallurgists pushed us - the state, the budget - in terms of state investments and state defense orders for about 100 billion rubles a year

- noted Andrey Belousov.

The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that this money must be returned to the treasury in the form of taxes or other payments, be it the severance tax or something else. At the same time, the official believes that it is necessary to refrain from increasing export duties on metallurgical products, since this will adversely affect the competitiveness of Russian producers.

After Andrey Belousov's statements, shares of Russian metallurgical companies on the Moscow Stock Exchange went down, including securities of Severstal, Norilsk Nickel, MMK and NLMK.

    In fact, government officials admitted that it is unlikely to prove this, and there is no talk of returning funds to the budget.
    They just shook a finger.

      Metallurgists can return this money with a rake, and some with shovels.

      How many times did the metal rise in price? I go, I see, the most "advanced" in the crazy buildings are packed with gas silicate bricks. I have never seen such blockages at the trading bases of building materials. I think that building materials will soon be impressed, and so on.

      It's easier to say that the price hasn't risen yet. And at times ... The government will also penalize them? And in the end, at whose expense will this "banquet" be?

      I am generally silent about the price and quality of products. All of us are being bullied. No quotes. Do you remember the "Estonian" sausage? Today that Soviet "guano", but for happiness and more would be ...!

      The conclusion is simple. Unfortunately, Putinism pretends to fight inflation (which is equal to 4% according to Nabibulina), seeks excuses in front of the electorate, and knocks down the first wave of discontent. And where is the "poor peasant" to go?

      Yeltsi-Chubais's came ... robbed? Putin's came ... are they robbing too? So where are you going?

    And if the State Planning Committee worked at least 50%, then it would be quite possible to return the money spent by the state.

      already worked 100% - the state eventually fired money so that the delegation could be sent to America to borrow money

      When the USSR ended with its General Plan, the treasury was empty.
