Russia launches online portal to expose unlawful prosecution of entrepreneurs

20 Nov '19
The Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI) and Russiaís leading business associations earlier this week launched a new online portal where entrepreneurs can report pressure from authorities or unlawful criminal prosecution, the U.S.-Russia Business Council reported, citing information from the new website.

Reports can be sent to senior law enforcement officials, Russian business associations, or Presidential Commissioner for Entrepreneursí Rights, Boris Titov. Law enforcement agencies are required to respond to complaints filed through the portal within 30 days.

Economic Development Minister Oreshkin said the portal should help draw federal authoritiesí attention to cases of unlawful prosecution of entrepreneurs in the regions which often remain unreported.

In July, President Putin said the online portal would help strengthen entrepreneursí confidence in authorities and ďremove dishonest elementsĒ from the law enforcement system and courts. A recent poll showed that 70% of entrepreneurs considered doing business in Russia to be unsafe. In October, Prime Minister Medvedev instructed the Ministry of Economic Development, law enforcement agencies, the Supreme Court, and Commissioner Titov to propose further measures to strengthen business confidence by December 16th.
