Seven Russian billionaires, whose combined fortune is estimated at $ 120 billion, gathered with Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin to discuss with him the government's plans to take profits from metallurgical mining companies.

According to Interfax, Roman Abramovich (Evraz, worth $ 14.5 billion), Vladimir Potanin (Norilsk Nickel, worth $ 27 billion), Alexey Mordashov (Severstal, $ 29.1 billion), Vladimir Lisin (NLMK, $ 26, 2 billion), Oleg Deripaska (En +, $ 3.7 billion), Victor Rashnikov (MMK, $ 11.2 billion) and Andrei Guryev (Phosagro, $ 6 billion) intend to negotiate with officials to cut new taxes planned by the Ministry of Finance for next year.

In addition to Mishustin, First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Grigorenko, Heads of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade Anton Siluanov, Maxim Reshetnikov and Denis Manturov will participate in the meeting.

Metallurgists, as well as mining companies, will have to share $ 546 billion with the treasury and by raising the MET and income tax, which can be increased to 25-30% for companies that sent funds to shareholders rather than investments.

According to, the MET for fertilizers will grow 2.5 times, for iron ore it will be 5.5%, for coking coal - 1.5%, non-ferrous metals - 6% of the average quotes of copper, nickel and platinum on world markets ... Steel excise taxes will amount to 3%.

As a reminder, in August Russia introduced export duties on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and next year the tax on the extraction of minerals for metallurgical organizations will be increased. Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov came up with the idea of introducing temporary duties on metallurgy products. He proposed to extend the effect of duties from August to December of the current year, inclusive.
