The Russian government has no plans to force employers to share the windfall from the weakening of the ruble and considers that the conditions of business should be stable, said the first Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov.

«I know, of course, these businessmen, who share with the state on a voluntary basis, but usually it’s some charity events, and social support. To suggest or hint at it we do not plan», — he said in the program «Sunday night with Vladimir Solovyov» on TV channel «Russia 1», answering the question that perhaps businessmen who suddenly become infinitely rich, could share with the state.

Earlier, the Russian presidential aide Andrei Belousov in a letter addressed to Vladimir Putin, suggested that the head of state instructed the government to consider increasing additional budget revenues due to enterprises of the mining and chemical industries, which have received dodohead from the weakening of the ruble.

According siluanova, it is always necessary to weigh the conditions that the state offers to business, the stability of these conditions and the resource that could be obtained from business, companies, violating the contract between the state and business. «What is more important is to get online and lose confidence? Or is it to maintain confidence, stability, but an additional resource from the devaluation of the ruble will work in the economy of these enterprises?» — said Siluanov.

In his opinion, the question is how companies manage these funds. «If they go to the payment of dividends and the enrichment of the owners is one thing. If you invest in manufacturing, new jobs — that’s what we should talk with these businesses. Not by appropriation, and that the money worked in Russia», — said the first Deputy Prime Minister.

He reminded that earlier the President instructed to prepare the tax changes and create a tax environment that would be stable over the next six years. Such changes adopted by the state Duma, and calculated on the basis of the budget of Russia the next three years, Siluanov noted.
