Interview with Aleksandr Lebedev

The Russian privatisation was legitimate but not fair enough, says Duma deputy Aleksandr Lebedev. This is the reason why companies should share their profits with the underpaid.

“This money would go to social benefits and could be used for controlling inflation,” he says.

At the same time Mr Lebedev notes that “it's not the position of the whole Duma, it's a suggestion made by four deputies. We are not in the new Duma but I hope deputies will find time to look at this bill”.
