The affected Russian companies received deferments for federal, regional and municipal property lease for 7 bln rubles. This was reported on the 15th of June by the Russian Minister of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin devoted to supporting measures for the economy and the social sphere.

“Last time, I reported to you that decisions had been made on various types of deferments for the state and municipal property lease. A total of 30 ths contracts had been signed, and business payments had been reduced by 7 bln rubles in this area,” the Minister said. “But I would like to mention separately that last week you signed the federal act allowing small and medium-sized companies from the affected industries to terminate their lease agreements without any penalties if the lessor does not meet such companies halfway, neither grant deferments nor reduce payments,” he noted. “This is what the business asked for, and what was supported at the legislative level.”

The Russian President instructed the Minister of Economic Development to also elaborate the issues of support for the lessors affected by the consequences of the spread of coronavirus infection.

“You mentioned the lessors and the measures applied to them if they do not meet the tenants halfway. But many lessors have been affected too by what has happened, and we should also look at that. I will ask you to consider this issue as well,” the Chief of State said.
