Only courts to establish crimes during 1990s privatization
MOSCOW, February 20 - RAPSI. Former Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin thinks that the results of the privatization of the 1990s just cannot be revised and crimes can only be established in court, according to his Twitter comments.
"Privatization results just cannot be revised. Crimes can only be established in court," the former finance minister wrote.
Privatization remains one of the most burning issues and most of the society stands for revising its results. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who is also a presidential candidate, has proposed to close the issue of the privatization's legitimacy and to develop a mechanism to define a lump-sum contribution to be made by the owners of privatized enterprises.
Kudrin earlier told that the introduction of lump-sum contributions proposed by Putin would worsen the legal and the economic climate in Russia.
