Dmitry Medvedev signed a federal law governing entrepreneurship and business activities

April 7, 2010

The federal law amends various statutes of the Russian Federation on entrepreneurship.

In particular, the law eliminates some ambiguous language in the articles of the Criminal Code addressing illegal enterprise and illegal banking activity; supplements Tax Code with new definitions for large scale and especially large scale damage applicable to tax crimes; specifies the grounds and procedures for and sets restrictions on custody-taking; and allows broader application of bail as a measure of restraint.
