Answering a question from the TASS agency, how does he see his worst nightmare, Gref replied: “Honestly? I am returning to the government. ” According to him, after ten years, he does not intend to work either in Sberbank, or in any other large company.

“In addition to working at the bank, there was another happy period in my life – teaching at the university. Maybe I’ll be back in the field of education. I’m interested in technology, venture capital investments, ”said Gref.

Commenting on the work of the cabinet in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, Gref compared it with what happened in 1998. “The government cannot be envied, if only for the reason that in the second week of its existence, he got the coronavirus.

According to Gref, in the midst of quarantine, the Cabinet of Ministers “worked, without exaggeration, 20 hours a day” in search of solutions to the situation.

“No one expected such stress. The worst thing at that moment is inaction. He was absent. A series of actions may have turned out to be vain and incorrect, as we understand with a hind mind, but then it seemed that these were absolutely correct reactions, ”Gref said.

He appreciated the head of Sberbank and the actions of the Central Bank, which, according to him, “worked very well.” “The necessary steps were taken in time, which allowed us to untie our hands a bit and support our customers. We carried out a gigantic restructuring as soon as possible, renewed as many loans in a week as in the whole of 2019 – more than a trillion rubles for legal entities, ”Gref said.

In 2000-2007, German Gref headed the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. Prior to that, he worked in various positions in the government of the country and the administration of St. Petersburg.

Preferential car loans expanded to electric cars – Business – Kommersant

The government has officially increased the budget of the preferential car loan program to 22.5 billion rubles. and approved new rules for access to such state support. For example, families with at least one child, health workers and those who give the car for a trade-in on the down payment now have the right to a discount of 10–25% of the price of the car. You can take a soft loan only for a car no more than 1.5 million rubles, localized in the Russian Federation. Although formally the program now extends to electric cars, it is actually impossible to purchase them because of the localization requirement, since such cars are not manufactured in Russia.

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin approved the amendments to the “First Car” and “Family Car” preferential car loan programs, as follows from Decree No. 907 of June 23. The government’s website notes that the program budget this year will be 22.5 billion rubles.

As part of preferential car loans, the buyer is entitled to a 10% discount on the cost of the car, but for the Far East its size is 25%. Now the maximum discount can also be obtained when buying an electric car. At the same time, there remains a requirement for the localization of cars purchased on credit in Russia – they must gain 1.4 thousand points under the 719th decree.

Since electric cars in Russia are not produced at all, in practice it is impossible to buy them with a soft loan.

New rules reinforce the opportunity to buy a car with it worth up to 1.5 million rubles. Price limit of 1 million rubles. acted in 2015, after which the cost steadily increased until 2019, when it was again reduced from 1.45 million to 1 million rubles. In fact, this fact, coupled with additional requirements for the level of localization of cars, significantly limited the list of cars covered by the preferential car loan program – the main financing was focused on Lada. From foreign cars, only Renault, two Hyundai models (Creta, Solaris), as well as one model Volkswagen (Polo), Skoda (Rapid) and Kia (Rio), fall into the program.

At the same time, with an increase in value, the range of brands acquired through preferential car loans did not increase.

Under the new rules, access to preferential car loans was given to families raising at least one child (previously two children), employees of medical institutions, as well as those who handed over the old car for a trade-in in payment of the initial payment.

Only a car older than six years old, which was owned by the borrower for at least a year, can be handed over to the trade-in, the resolution says.

In May, in the first month of easing restrictions amid the coronavirus, according to the United Credit Bureau (OKB; it also has data from Sberbank), citizens took 28.2 thousand car loans worth 22.4 billion rubles. The number and volume of loans issued compared with April more than doubled.

In practice, both the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the concerns participating in the programs informed about the launch of new access rules even before their approval – from the beginning of June. In addition, the document itself says that the new maximum cost of a car in preferential car loans (1.5 million rubles) applies to cars purchased from March 1, 2020.

In Russia, there is a short-term surge in demand for cars after an almost two-month downtime of the dealer network. Against this background, AvtoVAZ postponed the transition to a shorter work week until the end of summer. The manufacturers and dealers interviewed by Kommersant agree that sales have grown compared with the failed April-May indicators, but this is due to temporary factors in deferred demand and increased government support. The real picture will be clear only in September. So far, the industry believes that by the end of the year the market will fall by 30%, with some players assessing this scenario as optimistic.

The government allowed the introduction of liability for carriers of sanctions :: Business :: RBC

Products of sanctions, reminds the party of the last meeting the Deputy Prime Minister, come to Russia in several ways: they repackage as the products are not embargoed countries, imported under cover (product or hide behind packs of other permitted or documents are drawn on legal products) finally, imported products of unknown origin without accompanying documents. If the owner banned products cannot be found, to prosecute its carrier, explained the meaning of the initiative the interlocutor of RBC.

The transport company is responsible for the safety of the cargo that it carries, but is not obliged to answer for its composition, if we are not talking about the violation of the Criminal code, such as transportation of weapons or drugs, said managing partner of consulting company “Infra Projects” Alexey Bezborodov. The decision about the baggage claim takes, as a rule, the recipient or customs broker without the participation of the carrier, said Executive Director of the National Association of experts in the field of transport and logistics (SAL) Olga Fedotkin. She recalled that the transport company is liable if it is proved the fact of forgery, or complicity in the trafficking claim. But if we are talking about a bona fide transport company whose task is to deliver the cargo with necessary documents, what is the malice of the carrier, which should be punished, unclear, perplexed Fedotkin. According to SAL, this initiative will not significantly reduce the supply of sanctioned goods, as unscrupulous parties will find alternative ways. A more effective solution to the Union believes the strengthening of border control on entry to Russia, which will identify and deploy a prohibited item.

The FCS estimated the number of killed in five years of sanctions products

In 2017, the CPS has already proposed to introduce penalties for transportation, possession and sale of banned products and even has developed the corresponding bill. But the document was not accepted and responsibility for their storage and transportation aren’t currently installed, explains partner of the company “Rustam Kurmaev and partners” Dmitry Gorbunov. In the Code about administrative offences there is only article 14.2, punishable by fines for the illegal sale of banned in Russia products or goods, the sale of which is restricted by law. De facto, the only punishment for importers — seizure and destruction of the sanctions if it is found during the import, said Gorbunov.

Why I remembered about the supply of sanctions

To think about how to block a flow of products of sanctions to Russia, Vice-Premier of Victoria Abramchenko instructed in the spring: their proposals to the Ministry of agriculture and Rosselkhoznadzor had to prepare till may 22. The reason was suspicion that the country under the guise of Belarusian can be imported mushrooms from Poland. Question is interested in, after the Federation Council asked the Director General of the agricultural firm “Vyborzhets” and asked to tighten control over the import of mushrooms of the Russian-Belarusian border from Belarus began to receive a lot of cheap mushrooms at a price below the cost of Russian production.

The Ministry of agriculture has proposed to strengthen control over the supply of sanctions products on the whole territory of the Eurasian economic Union (it includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan). For example, to include measures of additional control over the products and potential supply constraints if some of the countries there is a distrust of the system of control of another state, as well as to audit the current system, reported “Vedomosti”.
