Human rights defender Dmitry Kalinin has made a shot at return his taxes spent by the RF Government for Crimea which annexation he considers illegal.
Kalinin has addressed a corresponding demand to the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. The Human rights activist justifies his demand with that there were no a referendum on a new territory annexation in Russia.
The answer of the Ministry of finance came to that all the taxes paid by citizens had already become part of the common “budget stock”. Therefore, “repayment of taxes directed to the populations living on the territory of Crimea is not possible.”
Earlier Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov admitted that “frozen” pension savings of citizens of the Russian Federation would never be returned due to the “Crimean campaign”.
