Recall that the number of Communist deputies suggested to allocate 20% of revenues from mining to annual payments to the Russians (the percentage of allocated revenues should increase annually). At the same time to get cash will not all, but only not working, seeking work or retired, where did they come out with a working experience of not less than 5 years.

Parliamentarians noted that as a result, in 2018, the Russians will be able to get only virtually any 10 thousand, while for the payment of large sums to the Russian budget, in contrast to, for example, Finnish, unable, not allowed to do that and give money to everyone, not to encourage parasites. This idea of the Communists is different from the one being discussed now in the West the idea of “unconditional income”.

Khodorkovsky reminded that he proposed a similar reform (he presented it at a press conference in the summer of 2016), however, it did not anticipate issuing cash to the Russians: “Because money can not eat. More roubles in circulation — inflation, which will eat more than you give.”

The idea of the founder of the “Open Russia”, the rent had to be translated into personal pension accounts of citizens, and directly, and “not transit through the budget, as it is now”, as in this case, “a chain is excluded from the official redistributor”, “little hands” which will settle 10-15% of the total.

“So, — concluded the Khodorkovsky — our (“Open Russia” — ed.) offer useful to society, and the proposal of the Communist party — a mistake because of misunderstanding of the modern economy”. The offer of Communists he called “crap”.

Thus on a bill the Communist party, the government has already given a negative review so, go through the Duma, he has virtually no chance.
