The increase in the number of bankruptcies in Russia is due to the fact that more actively apply the rule of bankruptcy law with the aim of closing companies and debt relief, says the Chairman of the Duma Committee on economic policy, industry, innovative development and entrepreneurship Sergei Zhigarev.

According to analysts, in the third quarter, the number of bankruptcies in the Russian economy grew by 3% compared to the previous quarter and 12.4 percent compared to the third quarter of 2016.

«From the point of view of the volume of bankruptcies is just a direct indication of the validity of the bankruptcy law, which people just began to actively use in order to formally close the company and cancel the debts», — he told RIA Novosti.

«Previously, they just threw the company and the company as a kind of «hung»: there is nothing did not occur to them, they did not work. Many people do not understand how to eliminate them how to get out of the charters of joint-stock companies. Today, people use bankruptcy law», — said the Deputy.

Thus, from the point of view of bankruptcy was «a good trend» going on, sure Zhigarev. «Anyway, we can see through the IRS today and clearly understand the company, relatively speaking, «frozen», and which do cease to work,» he explained.

Accordingly, the information on which directions we need to pay first and foremost attention in a business where «we fall down» by sectors with the largest number of companies in bankruptcy proceedings, said the head of the Duma Committee.
