Otherwise, according to the communist leader of the country, “in 5-10 years we will collapse into the abyss” # 8221;.
In addition, Zyuganov listed in his chain of telegrams the key problems of Russia.
He stressed the need to change the economic and social vectors of development, pointing to the inadmissibility of the manipulation and falsification of elections, as well as the persecution and intimidation of others in order to maintain the same direction of movement.

As the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation notes, Russian regions are put on starvation rations after having to collect debts. At the same time & # 8220; continues a dangerous adventure with the sale of MUP and GUP & # 8221 ;.
& # 8220; There is pressure on regional leaders who do not want to cede them to private hands. In my opinion, those who do this – provocative & # 8221;, & # 8211; Zyuganov is sure of it.
He pointed out that the pricing policy and the price disparity & # 8220; have beaten our peasantry & # 8221; and increasing the Central Bank's key rate to 5% & # 8220; suffocate & # 8221;
According to him, under current conditions, when there is a rapid development of technologies and innovations, traditional raw materials gradually become an object of declining demand, therefore, Gennady Zyuganov sees the Russian model of the country's socio-economic policy as desperate and dangerous.
“For now, you can achieve a desirable result in the elections and justify the irremovability of the Classes. But its historic fate cannot be undone ”, & # 8211; concluded the leader of the Communist Party, calling & # 8220; to hear the voice of the people & # 8221 ;.

Many are afraid that after the announced results of these polls the country will again raise taxes & # 8220; at the request of workers & # 8221;.
& # 8220; I don't know those who agree to pay more taxes, but the needy, who constantly receive state support, are well known to everyone, Sechin, Miller, Usmanov and so on & # 8230 ; & # 8221; & # 8211; writes Dmitry Serov.
& # 8220; Are these the same Russians who were eager to raise the retirement age? Are they for a four-day work week (with a corresponding pay cut)? & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; asks Axel Foley.
& # 8220; I understand that this investigation & # 8211; the day before the next pseudo-reforms directed against the people .. when will it stop? & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; underlines Alina Bogdanova.

& # 8220; I don't know who was interviewed there, but personally I don't support this & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; says Blade 1.
& # 8220; This is nonsense. Who are these & # 8220; most Russians & # 8221; and which falls under the category & # 8220; poor & # 8221; ???? I have a salary of 30,000. Am I the first or the second ??? & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; asks Dmitry Popov.
& # 8220; Which Russians are willing to pay the poor MORE taxes? What nonsense ?! Take the taxes of your Rothenbergs and their companies, sell the palaces and distribute them to the poor! & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; Malyuta Skuratov advises.
Earlier, TopNews wrote that Russia may impose a tax on foreign social media advertising on Russian bloggers.
It is expected that the payments can bring to the budget billions of rubles.
One of the richest people in Russia, entrepreneur and main owner of the Novolipetsk metallurgical plant, Vladimir Lisin, told an anecdote about the statements of Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov regarding the claims against the metallurgists , “who squeezed” the state for 100 billion rubles.
As entrepreneur RBC quotes, the popular joke speech is about a parade on Red Square.
At one point, the advertiser said that now & # 8220; on the cobblestones come out & # 8230; & # 8221; and people in gray bureaucratic suits appeared in the square in complete silence.
The president asked who it was, to which he received an unexpected response from the escort.
“This is a weapon of terrible destructive power, we got it from the Soviet Union. These are former employees of the National Planning Commission, “& # 8211; Lisin sarcastically.
Commenting on Belousov's remarks, he advised not to fix the country's economy, it is already working as usual.
Speaking of & # 8220; native & # 8221; metallurgical industry, the head of NLMK noted that the amount of taxes paid on income of the Russian Federation amounted to exactly the same 100 billion rubles.
Earlier, as Topnews wrote, Belousov accused the metallurgists of 'pushing' the state for 100 billion, having appropriated the profits obtained from it. successful market alignment during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Kremlin responded to his statement, urging not to seek blame, describing what is happening as “economic life”.
So, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the state plans to get additional revenue from the industry.
Note that, according to media reports, as a result of the scandal billionaires Potanin and Mordashov lost $ 1.2 billion in one day.
Anastasia Tatulova said the business 'has evaporated', that it is being developed.
The founder and co-owner of the Anderson family cafes, Public Enterprise Ombudsman Anastasia Tatulova, speaking at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, said there was no Understanding between the authorities and the companies, because the latter does not get what he really needs.
As Tatulova explained, there is a gap in understanding the needs of a business, between small and medium-sized entrepreneurs and the government agencies that oversee them.
According to her, while listening to other attendees, she withheld a quote from government officials speaking at SPIEF that she would like to discuss. # 8220; measures to support simplicity and accessibility '.
“I will disappoint you. The main demand of entrepreneurs & # 8230; it is cost-efficiency and safety & # 8230; Above all, he needs forums, ”she said.
At the same time, referring to the chairman of the forum, the Presidential Commissioner for the Rights of Entrepreneurs of the Russian Federation Boris Titov, she asked: & # 8220; I'll say too much now, Boris Yuryevich, will you get me out of jail later? & # 8221 ;.
Tatulova pointed out that the authorities do not have a team of experts who understand the problems of small and medium-sized enterprises, and the advice of existing experts more often go remove businessmen from lists if they say “inconvenient” things.
According to her, & # 8220; everything will go with you & # 8221; only if the conservatives of the authorities can listen to the other side and work with & # 8220; annoying & # 8221; things.
In those business development strategies that are currently working in Russia, in his opinion, there are no main business needs. Namely, there is no & # 8220; security & # 8221; and & # 8220; efficiency & # 8221 ;.
“Everything is: digitization, acceleration, generation, sandboxing. Only these two words are missing, ”explains the owner of coffee chains.
As Tatulova said, generally & # 8220; body movement & # 8221; the state addressed to entrepreneurs ends up with the fact that the job gets more complicated, and conscientious businessmen go into the shadows.
& # 8220; Payments of taxes, duties and fines increase, reduction of contributions – only on paper & # 8221;, & # 8211; she berated the authorities.
Tatulova added that with such a policy, companies can either go “gray” and # 8221; and they will not be affected, either turn white and pay taxes, and then to him & # 8220; everyone will come & # 8221 ;.
Meanwhile, social institutions, which are created for the development of enterprises, have huge funds.
& # 8220; Abolish them – give money & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; urged the businesswoman.
The entrepreneur added that it would be better to set the rules for ten years, and not allow banks to interfere in the affairs of entrepreneurs and freeze accounts.
Owner & # 8220; Anderson & # 8221; spoke of the 'amazement' experienced by small and medium businesses, looking at the 'help' they receive. She offered to spend these budgetary funds on something useful, for example, for the construction of a new & # 8220; Sirius & # 8221 ;.
& # 8220; We don't need institutions that will develop us. We have evaporated, that we are being developed & # 8221;, – said Tatulova on the forum.
According to her, a person who has never been involved in business cannot teach her anything.
& # 8220; We have a total crisis of confidence in authorities and businesses: you spit on us, and we hate you. It & # 39; s bad for everyone & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; Tatulova cited Tatulov among the entrepreneurs who left her a comment on the social network.
Video of Tatulova's performance at SPIEF in less than a day recorded YouTube has over 250,000 views, nearly 20,000 likes and hundreds of enthusiastic comments.
Internet users admired the courage of the entrepreneur and now seriously fear for his fate.
Many admit that Tatulova spoke out loud what all the representatives of small and medium-sized businesses on the fringes are talking about, but are afraid to express it publicly.
& # 8220; My God, what am I hearing. What are the correct words & # 8221;, & # 8220; You can end this forum. Other speakers do not need & # 8221 ;, & # 8220; This forum is a party among the plague for officials. “The mafia is immortal. Tatulova is right & # 8221;, & # 8220; The speech is good, but useless in our reality. It has long been clear to everyone that all the rules that have been created are neither for entrepreneurs nor for people. And we must not ask, but demand! & # 8221 ;, & # 8220; It's just a bomb! Right now to say everything the way it is, and not to bring out fancy propaganda clichés to please the Kremlin! It is worth a lot and means a lot! Thanks Anastasia! & # 8221 ;, & # 8220; Anyone who wants their own business – unmissable & # 8221;, & # 8211; users write in the comments.
Earlier, Topnews wrote that the day before the founder of & # 8220; Anderson & # 8221; complained that he was asked for 960,000 rubles for his performance at SPIEF. She asked to cross out her photo and sign the word & # 8220; Snape & # 8221 ;.
To this, the Kremlin replied that the forum is a platform for business, and its conditions are determined by the entrepreneurs themselves.
According to Kremlin President Dmitry Peskov, & # 8220; this is & # 39; an economic event & # 8221; and businesses are actively involved.
The Baltic states were faced with the refusal of the Russian Federation to use local ports.
The Baltic States are watching with concern how the Russian and Belarusian authorities refuse to use the services of local ports. As a result, the ports are threatened with nationalization, according to media reports,
Political attacks by Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian leaders against the Kremlin have resulted in a change in the routes of Russian exports. abroad. Instead of the Baltic ports, ships go west via Ust-Luga, Vysotsk and Vyborg.
Meanwhile, it is known that it is precisely the geographical position and the ports that brought three countries out of the backyard status of Europe ago hundred years, and now they are rapidly losing their conquered positions again.
Thus, for Latvia and Estonian ports were the most important sector of the economy, which is now in deep crisis.
The volumes of goods transported through the Baltic Sea ports are decreasing rapidly, during the year freight traffic has decreased by a third, specifies & # 8220; Baltnews & # 8221 ;.
Due to the reduction in freight for all positions, the budget is drained quickly.
& # 8220; The downward trend has already become irreversible and in the near future the Baltic ports could look like a trailer for an American film from the genre dystopia & # 8221 ;, & # 8211; writing edition.
Analysts are talking about a drop in the number of containers, bulk, mineral and liquid cargo, lumber, and the changes are irreversible. Due to Russia's refusal, the Baltic ports are empty, according to media reports.
Belarus behaves similarly. Minsk decided to redirect freight to Russia, and already in 2021 began to run freight trains via Ust-Luga.
After the events with blogger Roman Protasevich, Vilnius and Minsk could not get along, and the trend continues.
This situation worries not only ordinary Balts, but also former Latvian officials. Not all of them support the policy of the authorities.
According to the former Minister of Transport of Latvia, transport expert Andrijs Matisse, urgent changes are needed in relations with the Russian Federation.
“We are not, we will be able to develop transit if we have bad relations with our neighbors”, & # 8211; Baltnews quotes it.
The expert believes that Latvia should take into account its own economic interests, and not send them hostage in relations with neighboring countries.
According to Matisse, Latvia has no choice but to lead & # 8220; pragmatic & # 8221; course, and building & # 8220; constructive & # 8221; relations with neighbors, otherwise the transit sector can not be saved.

In an interview with Rise, “Mazepin & # 39; s representatives said the oligarch should be expected in plenary on Friday with the participation of Vladimir Putin.
