In a review of Russian newspapers:
Vedomosti and Kommersant: a step in the Soviet era.
The newspaper Vedomosti writes about criticism from the Human Rights Council regarding the law on media – foreign agents. The council believes that the mirror measures against the US can spread to all unwanted media. The HROs note that for the recognition of the media by foreign agents only one criterion is provided – foreign financing.
However, as stated in the draft of the HRO’s expert opinion on the draft law on the media, “it is absolutely clear that any foreign media is funded from foreign sources.” The HRC invites the Federation Council to reject the bill approved by the State Duma last week and return it for revision.
According to council member Ilya Shablinsky, the new law will worsen the situation of foreign media and is “another step in the Soviet era.” The deputies decided to use the concepts of one law in the sphere of application of the other, adds Alexander Verkhovsky, member of the HRC: “The concept of a foreign agent includes both political activity and foreign financing.” This law only refers to foreign funding, and this criterion includes all foreign media. ”
Expansionary norms of this law are “suspended” by any media, and enforcement can be the same as the application of the law on NGOs – foreign agents, political scientist Alexei Makarkin said: “When the law on NGOs – foreign agents was passed, they said that they would get under him but a few years later the Dynasty and Levada Center found themselves in the register, and with the new law one can go along the same route-now to say that these are mirror measures, and then that the law is a law. ”
The Kommersant newspaper in the article on the same topic cites the opinion of the member of the HRO, head of the new media department of journalism at the Moscow State University, Ivan Zasursky, who notes that the work of foreign media in the Russian Federation is regulated more stringently than in the US: “We have a 20% Our response is disproportionate to the actions of the US, because of the two media we impose restrictions on all foreign media. ”
NG and RBC: immigration call.
Center for Strategic Research Alexei Kudrin advises Russians to come to terms with guest workers. In the report “Russia’s Demographic Challenges” experts note the “underpopulation” of the country, caused by low birth rate and high mortality. And they warn that at the current rate by 2035 the natural loss of population can reach at least 400 thousand, and even a million people.
To solve the problem of shortage of workers already now, analysts of the CSR believe, it would be possible to attract even more migrants. According to their calculations, at least 500,000 migrants are required for compensation each year.
“Nezavisimaya Gazeta” notes that it is a question of accepting migrants not for temporary covering the deficit in the labor market, but for the purpose of their naturalization and becoming a full-fledged citizen of Russia. That is, it is proposed to issue Russian passports to them even more actively than now, and also to strengthen programs for their integration. The Russians themselves are recommended to “raise the threshold of social tolerance.”
The newspaper RBC writes about another aspect of the demographic policy, noted in the report of the CSR. It concerns emigration from Russia. Experts believe there are no grounds for it now, and its scale does not have a serious impact on the demographic situation in the country. The only kind of emigration that takes place is a “brain drain”, and it is more of an economic or political challenge, but not a demographic one.
“Vedomosti”: the tax, as it is not called.
Entrepreneurs complained to Vladimir Putin on Premier Dmitry Medvedev that he did not fulfill his promise not to increase the tax burden on business. The heads of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, “Business Russia”, CCI and “Russian Support” wrote to the president a letter. It says that only in 2018, business will have to pay more than 100 billion rubles of various new fees, which the government has written into the draft three-year budget.
The newspaper notes that the president imposed a moratorium on the growth of the tax burden in 2014 until the end of 2018. But since then a lot of payments and fees have appeared, which formally are not taxes. This, in the opinion of the publication, will inevitably lead to a reduction in investment, a rise in prices for the means of production and the final output in virtually all sectors.
Alexandra Suslina of the Economic Expert Group believes that the indignation of business is understandable: from the fact that the tax will be called a collection, the load will not be less. And the president of “Support of Russia” Alexander Kalinin notes that the moratorium did not interfere and does not interfere with raising taxes and overall fiscal burden. The purpose of the letter, according to him, is to draw the President’s attention to the problem.
However, the head of the analytical service “Pepeliaev Group” Vadim Zaripov believes that his deterrent role of the moratorium of Putin still played. Without it, the load would grow even stronger.
Izvestiya: Russians will be divorced in a new way.
The Family Code of Russia is planned to introduce amendments that simplify the division of property between former spouses, the newspaper Izvestia says in a fresh issue. The Public Chamber has developed the relevant proposals. In the State Duma, the initiatives were considered “reasonable” and are going to discuss them with the involvement of experts.
So, business will depart to the one who was engaged in it, and the second partner thus will receive “fair compensation”. Its size will determine the court – based on the needs of the individual, his social status and standard of living. To pay compensation could not be one-time, but within a certain time, also established by the court. This will less affect the business and will save the value of the asset.
In addition, courts may be allowed to modify the terms of the marriage contract if it seems unfair to them. Also in the unified state register of rights to real estate will be required to indicate that the apartment is in joint ownership of the spouses.
The experts interviewed by Izvestia, on the whole, positively assess the amendments to the Family Code.
