MOSCOW, 3 Dec./strong>. The Chairman of Subcommittee of the state Duma on state regulation of excisable goods and promotional activities Victor Zvagelsky considers that it is necessary to introduce mechanisms of state monopoly in the alcohol industry of the Russian Federation.

On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin announcing the message to the Federal Assembly, said that because of “grey” schemes at payment of customs duties, excise taxes on alcohol, tobacco and petrol, oil and lubricants budget annually loses hundreds of billions of rubles.

“With all of the proposed humanization for business in General, as rightly said Putin, the only way for the alcohol industry is the introduction of mechanisms of state monopoly, as the current regulation is not justified. If we are talking about the elements of a state monopoly, it must be distributed, primarily in the wholesale, and eventually retail sector,” said Zvagelsky journalists.

In his opinion, this measure will give substantial economic effect and will exclude all sorts of schemes to avoid taxes.

In addition, according to Zvigelskaya, there is conversion in law. “First of all, it is necessary to adopt a number of legislative initiatives that will fully exclude the possibility of the existence of any schemes for the payment of tax deductions… time problems to be addressed comprehensively, what we have said repeatedly and presented their programs in this part,” he said.
