Russia’s parliament: recognize EU countries and the US as “aggressors,” blacklist foreigners, raid their consulting businesses



2014/12/04 • Russia

The Russian State Duma wants to recognize EU countries and the US as “aggressors.”

The corresponding bill was introduced by a group of MPs from “United Russia” and the Liberal Democratic Party, as reported by RIA Novosti.

In particular, the draft law would recognize as an aggressor state any country, which imposes sanctions on Russia.

Accordingly, it establishes that any foreign legal and natural persons registered in the “aggressor state,” as well as Russian legal entities affiliated or dependent on such foreign entities are prohibited to carry out activities related to the financial audit, legal and other consulting services in the territory of the Russian Federation.

The authors of the proposal explain that such measures are related primarily to the fact that currently the consulting industry in the Russian business is “monopolized by foreigners.”

“It is worth noting that 70% of the market for consulting services in Russia, which in 2013 amounted to more than 90 billion rubles, is owned by foreign companies,” – was said in the memorandum.

As was previously reported, the State Duma also proposes to establish “black lists” of foreigners.

      The Russians have figured out an one more way to lose 90 billion.
      Six more months of this and they won’t have the change fill up Putin’s car.

    And this will appear on RT news ! because vlad the magnific can blame foreigners assault on russia !
    Next move, he will repatriate all russian business all over the world, to have enough money to buy cabbages from Siberian (cabbages do not support freezing point) but do not loose the weight, so the customers get full weight for money !
    I have been dreaming about putin as the boss of a wheelbarrows factory, it will be big demands from the market soon ! Both for money models and cabbages models.
    Tips to RT journalists, please send on air !

    Newsweek today “The greatest danger for the president is the economy, under the double pressure
    of sanctions and falling oil prices,” commentator Kirill Rogov wrote in the
    business daily Vedomosti, which said this week the economy was seriously ill and
    Russia’s leaders were refusing to admit it or do anything about it.”

    So who do I have to piss off to get on this list?
    Here is an idea. Russia charges a fee to be Blacklisted.
    Hay I’d pay! How cool would that be?

    • Michel Cloarec

      The only way I can think off is to make a real biography of vlad the magnific and spread on Internet/Vkontake !

      • Murf

        Not bad Michel.

  • Dirk Smith

    General-Secretary Putin now sounds like Kim Jong Un. If not for this delusional greedy fascist, Russia would equal China and the USA for economic strength.

  • Dean Venture

    Yes, because WE annexed Crimea, and WE invaded Ukraine while Russia protested our actions. The Russian State Duma – completely disconnected from reality.

  • Jim

    Is it too fine a distinction for Dickhead to comprehend: aggression vs. counter-aggression?

  • Adam Rytwiński

    Just another step for further isolation Mr. Putin…
