The state Duma rejected the draft law on the recognition of "aggressor country" country, which imposes punishment relative to Russia, and banning companies from that state to work in the field of audit, legal and other consulting services.
Amendments made by the deputies Evgeny Fedorov ( "United Russia" ), Sergey Katasonov (LDPR) and Anton Romanov ( "United Russia" ). The bill introduces a definition of "aggressor country" subject to "aggressive and is not an affiliate of conduct" countries imposing punishment relative to Russia, Russian citizens and Russian legal entities. The draft law establishes that foreign legal and natural persons registered in the " aggressor state ", as well as Russian legal entities affiliated or dependent on such foreign persons prohibited from carrying on the territory of the Russian Federation the activities of inspection, the provision of legal and other Advisory services, reports RIA " Novosti ".
The authors of the amendments clarify that such activities are tied in 1st place with that now consulting infrastructure businessmen of Russia monopolized by foreigners. Elected officials suggest that at least six major U.S. accounting and consulting firms working in Russia, will fall under the ban. First in the leadership of several committees of the state Duma criticized the initiative, arguing the fact that the Executive authorities of Russia have sufficient authority to respond to the punishment of the West, you do not need to amend the law. Thus, the Committee ekonompolitike in the opinion on the draft law stated that the right to ban clearance services rendered by foreign persons, and the limits of tolerance specified services for procurement provided by the Russian government." The adoption of these changes will lead to difficulties in the implementation of its provisions in practice. For example, it will be impossible to procure these services by the diplomatic missions and consular institutions of Russia, Russian trade missions to international organizations and other customers that operate outside the territory of the Russian Federation ", - said in the conclusion. In early December 2014, the State Duma of Russia has introduced a draft law, which proposes to recognize the "aggressor country" state, which imposes the punishment relative to Russia, Russian citizens and legal entities.
