"2.0 grappling": Russia is waiting for the forced sale of state assets

12
Two months ago, the Russian government decided to abandon the idea of ​​returning the capital of large domestic corporations from offshore companies. The reason for this was the "negative assessment" of this idea by the commission headed by Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov. Officials concluded that the transfer of strategic corporations under Russian jurisdiction could strike at the domestic economy.


Hundreds of billions of dollars received from the sale of oil and gas, with the connivance of the government, were taken abroad for years. They were invested in luxury real estate, in premium Western assets.

According to the US Bureau of Economic Research, at 2016, Russian citizens kept offshore in an amount almost equal to domestic GDP — about 1 trillion dollars. Most of this money belongs to large oil and gas companies in Russia.

    Have you noticed that the phrase "in this difficult time for the country ..." in Russia can be used at any time?

      Since perestroika, it has been a “difficult time” for us and has no tendency to end.

    In the past 20 years, we have no state. We have thieves and those who cover and protect them

    Our liberals, with the money they seized in the USSR and Russia, do not want to build and produce anything, they do not want to invest and develop production anywhere. They only want to privatize, so that everything goes only to them, and nothing gets to the people. They live somehow. When these Shuvalovs, Chubays, Kudrins and others like them will go into oblivion. And will the people heal normally? The topic is topical and there is no one to vang.

      They themselves will not leave this feeding trough. They will hold on to it until the last. The longer I live under this occupation government, the more I respect Stalin

        And I respect Vladimir Ilyich for the fact that he took everything from the bourgeoisie and nationalized it, gave the land to the peasants. But Stalin took the land from them and started collectivization.

    I can’t fit one thing in my head. Where so much money? "Provided" themselves, children, grandchildren, where else? Take to the grave with you? What prevents the superfluous, in fact, money from being spent on useful and necessary work for the Motherland? Education, culture, and much more can be done that will be remembered with a kind word long after death. No, you need to set up gold toilets, buy so many fur coats that you can wear a new one every week, eat from platinum forks, etc. etc. What are these show-offs for?
    It seems to me that all these creatures are not people, but nonhumans, in whom all healthy feelings are completely atrophied, one human shell has remained.
    However, the law of karma has not been canceled, and fortunately, it cannot be canceled. It would be interesting to see how karma recoup on these creatures.

    here again and again they will elect our genius-irreplaceable sun Putin for 4-10 as president and "these Shuvalovs, Chubais, Kudrins and others like that .... will heal normally."
    And the people will go into oblivion.
