As reported Znak.com Kalinin has addressed with the corresponding requirement in the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. His words, the defender was justified by the fact that Russia is not a referendum on the possibility of accession of new territory.
Response of the Ministry of Finance came down to the fact that all taxes paid by the citizens, fall within the General budget “pot”: “…the budget expenditure can be linked to certain revenues. The return of the funds paid in taxes to the budgets of the budget system of the Russian Federation and allocated for payments to the population living on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula, is not possible.
Recall that the incident with the money collected from the citizens in support of the Crimea, occurs not for the first time. So, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said earlier that the “frozen” pension of Russian citizens will never be returned to them due to the fact that “went to the Crimea”.
