The Chairman of Committee of the State Duma on the financial market Anatoly Aksakov advocated the creation of an offshore zone in Crimea, but in the near future, according to him, this will not happen.

«I’ve always been a supporter of Crimea was not just a special economic zone, but in a sense, an offshore company that in Crimea, there were legal norms, which allow you to work different forms, including concealing the real owners of a company that are registered in the Crimean jurisdiction. So far this has not been done. We have not been able yet to convince the government that this form could work in the Crimea. I can say that in the near future this will not happen, unfortunately», — said Aksakov told reporters.

According to him, Russia has in fact operates two offshore Kaliningrad and Primorsky Krai.

«If it’s a good experience, I admit that this experience can be applied in the Crimea, and some will take advantage of, including foreigners such opportunity,» — said Aksakov.
