Putin proposes reparations for ’90s

9 February, 2012



Vladimir Putin wants any disputes from Russia’s chaotic privatizations in the 1990s settled once and for all. At a meeting with leading Russian businessmen, the PM said entrepreneurs involved may have to pay a one-off duty to secure their assets.
At a meeting with leading Russian businessmen, Prime Minister Putin suggested that the results of the 1990s privatization should be fixed once and for all, but that entrepreneurs ensure the community accepts this plan – possibly via a one-off duty.
It is not the first time Vladimir Putin has said that the initial privatization in Russia was not completely fair, but the first time the PM, who is currently running for presidency, has said that those who benefited most must compensate the rest of society.
“We must turn this page. We must end this period. There are various suggested options and they all must be discussed with the community and with experts. Discussed in such way that society accepts the option of closing the problem of the unfair, to be frank, privatization of the 1990s,” Putin said.
The PM said that a special mechanism must be created for the purpose.
“This can be a one-time toll or something else. We must think about it together. I think that society as a whole and the entrepreneurs as a class are interested in this,” Putin said.
At the same meeting, Putin asked one of the participants, board chairman of the Magnitogorsk Metals Group, billionaire Viktor Rashnikov, what his attitude to the luxury tax was.
“You have only just voiced this idea… it must be thought through and looked at,” the businessman answered. “But if the time has come…” Rashnikov replied.
“Thanks you for your answer, it is good,” the prime minister said, as the audience laughed.
At the same time Putin said that the authorities are not planning to impose heavier taxation on economic sectors other than raw materials production.

I don't understand Mr Putin.

Why discuss this with the crooks? They will always say. "Oh but the recession is very bad and the economy will be damaged, maybe at a later date".

Crooks never want to give the money back, is common sense. They will all book a flight to Israel or the UK.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

I am not much optimistic on Russia though. Sorry Putin. Population decline plus evasive corruption leads to a gloomy future.
Put out your right arm, hold back your left arm... <(=^.^=);

Over 50% of Russian citizens want to vote for Putin - poll
Interfax - 2.3.12 - JRL 2012-20MOSCOW. Feb 3 (Interfax) - Vladimir Putin has far outdistanced the other presidential candidates in his electoral rating and support for him has grown by three percentage points, the state-run pollster VTsIOM told Interfax on Friday.




Asked whom among the candidates they would support were the presidential elections to be held next Sunday, 52% of respondents named Putin, the United Russia party nominee, compared to 49% a week earlier.

The poll was conducted on January 28 and 29, and involved 1,600 respondents in 138 populated areas of 46 Russian regions. The margin of error was 3.4%.

Electoral support for Putin's rival, Gennady Zyuganov of the Communist Party, has dropped from 11% to 8%, and that of Vladimir Zhirinovsky of the Liberal-Democratic Party from 9% to 8%.

The percentage of citizens who would vote for Sergei Mironov of A Just Russia party has fallen from 6% to 4%, while the electoral rating of self-nominee Mikhail Prokhorov has remained at a stable 4%.

President Dmitry Medvedev's approval rating remained stable at 55%-57% during the month and that of Putin at 58%-60%.

United Russia is the only political party that has been drawing stable electoral support of 42% for the past three weeks. The ratings of the other parties continue to fall, with the Communist Party's rating dropping from 15% to 12%, of the Liberal-Democratic Party from 11% to 8%, A Just Russia from 9% to 7% and smaller parties standing at 1%-2%..
