MOSCOW, April 28 (Itar-Tass) - RIA Novosti. More than 430 billion US dollars, according to independent estimates, illegally withdrew from Russia for the period from 2000 to 2017, told RIA Novosti chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security Viktor Bondarev.
"According to independent estimates, about 430.7 billion dollars were exported from our country from 2000 to 2017. These are huge financial resources that could be invested in the development of the domestic economy," the senator said.
According to him, the illegal withdrawal of capital from Russia is one of the key problems, the resolution of which will significantly affect the implementation of breakthrough opportunities in various sectors of the economy.
Bondarev said that to improve the current legislation and law enforcement practices in the field of countering economic crimes, the Committee on Defense and Security of the Council of Federation proposes a number of measures. They include the formation of "new legal and organizational mechanisms aimed at the timely detection and suppression of alleged, pretentious transactions in the field of foreign economic activity, the identification and suppression of the activities of organizations created for the purpose of evading taxes, illegal removal of material assets from Russia."
The committee also proposes to improve the system of organizational and information interaction of law enforcement and supervisory bodies, as well as to reform the system of banking supervision "in the field of fixing and storing meaningful information about the activities of credit institutions."
An example recursive BS spouted by pathologically inadequate morons. Capital flight =/= illegal fund transfers. But this number is clearly counting capital flight as part of
the "illegal" flow. Note the period: between 2000 and 2017. Khodorkovsky's transfer pricing rackets were shut down in 2003. One of the reasons Putin is demonized so
much is because he clamped down on illegal capital flows such as those by Yukos. The insinuation behind this number estimate is that everything happened under Putin's
nose as if he did nothing about it. So this is yet more anti-Putin smear. An honest assessment would be from 1991-2003 and from 2004-2017. The vastly greatest portion of
illegal transfers happened between 1991 and 2003. There is no freaking way that several hundred billion dollars were siphoned after 2004. Only large companies could have
had such large capital pools to transfer. Private individuals and small businesses are just not relevant based on the capital the control.
Victor Bondarev is clearly a POS who is working for Uncle Scumbag pushing the "rampant corruption" myth designed to foist a colour revolution on Russia. He is claiming that
over $300 billion got siphoned over the 13 year period from 2004 to 2017. That amounts to $23 billion per year which is comparable to the period before 2004. Again, as if there
was no crackdown on Khodorkovsky style rackets. So, Bondarev, where is your evidence that Gazprom and Rossneft are engaged in transfer pricing rackets? This clown also
does not account for the financial sanctions against Russia after 2014. There was a massive paydown of foreign debt (over $220 billion in the course of two years).
Bondarev reminds me of the clown who oversees the AIDS disease in Russia. Every few years he makes absurd apolcalyptic predictions about uncontrolled infection rates.
Every single time he is dead wrong.
