PM: Govt to make decisions to fulfill Putins orders on Thursday

MOSCOW, Mar 26 (PRIME) -- The Russian government has to make all the decisions necessary to fulfill Wednesdays orders of President Vladimir Putin to support people and businesses on Thursday, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said at a government meeting.

We have to make all decisions that are necessary to fulfill the presidents orders today, Mishustin said.

Among the priority measures are reduction of insurance payments for small and medium-sized companies and provision of the right for these companies to delay tax payments. We will do that immediately as soon as the bill is drafted, he said.

He also ordered the Finance Ministry to amend all double taxation agreements with all countries in a month.

Speaking of the money that are transferred to the offshores from our country in the form of dividend payments, I order the Finance Ministry to work out all double taxation agreements in a month, the tax on dividends for their withdrawal abroad should be collected at a rate of no less than 15%, he said.

The bulk of reliable and responsible people understand the need to fight the virus, but there are people that dont care about safety. That is why we are introducing amendments to the Administrative Violations Code and sanctions on those who refuse to comply with the rules that we have set. We will fine people, officials, and companies as well for that, he said.

The government also plans to allocate almost 105 billion rubles to start monthly payments to the families with children aging from three to seven a month earlier, in accordance with the Putins order.

People were supposed to start receiving these payments in July, now we have to take care of it starting from June, a month earlier. We will allocate almost 105 billion rubles from the federal budget to this goal, and about 31.5 billion rubles more will come from the regional budgets, Mishustin said.
