The policy, pursued by the Russian leadership, gives
good results. Media reported about the transfer to Russia of 100% shares of the largest
iron-ore producer in the country — «Metinvesta». Contrary
the predictions of skeptics, the return of assets in Russia from the trickle turns into
rapid financial river.
Holding USM Holdings Limited and Alisher Usmanov
and partners announced the consolidation of 100% shares of JSC «holding «metalloinvest»
in the incoming in the composition of the Russian company «metalloinvest Wesam».
The reason for this step, the owners of the company called structure optimization
of ownership. Now Metinvest is entirely
The transfer of assets of USM to the Russian Federation began in 2014, and now we see the first «finished» result of this process, which can not but rejoice.
Until recently, «Wesam» owned only 54,25%
shares of «metalloinvest», but by the end of 2016, according to the results of a number of

Lebedinsky GOK, Oskol electrometallurgical works
and steel plant «Ural steel».

moved to regulatory activities. In December 2012 Vladimir Putin announced

of the Russian economy. In March of 2013, the fans keep the money abroad
got a Wake-up call: Germany was to force Cyprus to expropriate
portion stored on the island of offshore funds by imposing a lump-sum
The events of late 2013 and early 2014 demonstrated that the West goes to almost naked aggression against Russia and Russian interests and foreign assets can turn this fight into a kind of «hostages».
At the end of 2014 the Russian offshore business appeared
new «stimulus». November 25, Vladimir Putin
signed tough enough law about deoffshorization. Controlled by the «aliens»
companies are obliged to pay taxes to the budget of the Russian Federation and physical and juridical persons —

In March 2015, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation reported that the outflow from our country’s capital associated with dubious operations, decreased from 26.5 to $ 9 billion.
In June 2015, Vladimir Putin signed the law on «Amnesty»
