Krasnodar, 29 April. Today our interviewee is Murat Dudarev, Co-Chairperson of the Krasnodar Regional Branch of the OPORA Russia Non-Profir Partnership. 

Q.: How would you assess the direction taken by the government to help small and midsize businesses?

A.: On the whole, the direction is right, however as usual the problems are hidden in details. When with one hand the government provides financial support to small businesses but with the other hand it settles such a tough auditing and reporting mode that the money coming from the budget are becoming toxic for small businesses, then the efficiency of such support significantly decreases. The state should raise the bar of trust to national businesses – then the money invested as help to small and middle businesses will yield a bigger result. 

Q.: Judging from responses given by business circles from other regions, what is the attractiveness and what are the risks of the Kuban region? 

A.: Our attractiveness lies in our geographical and climatic position, a big amount of solvent population, and a well-developed infrastructure. Businessmen from other regions voiced their concerns that one day our local governmental officials may as if on cue begin to absolutely lawfully ‘nightmarize’ their business, while the law enforcement agencies, responding to a complaint of some suddenly outraged contractor or customer, may distort civil matters and turn them into criminal relations. Then, businessmen are scared that the courts may not be just and unbiased, and all further instances would support the unlawful court decisions meant to eat away the business. Yes, illegal takeover of businesses is the main fear of the businessmen from other regions. 

Q.: If to summarize what businesspeople are asking you, what are the difficulties they are facing now? 

A.: Very frequently, they complain that the authorities prefer to deal shortly with the so-called unauthorized construction projects. What is at issue is not the grave misuse of the law – now, they complain about recently built houses, with all rights having been duly registered and which have for a long while been used for some activity; or about residential high-rises that were constructed with all permits and are ready for commission. The authorities tend to look for some minor faults made five or even fifteen years ago, and commence sudden suits. The courts satisfy these suits, and out of their flourishing business the businessman gets a problematic facility to be pulled down by a mighty bulldozer. Here the authorities are overacting. I would even advance the initiative to ascertain that a construction project has some signs of being an unauthorized undertaking, with all those expert examinations and other inspections, in the process of a dialogue between the business circle and the authorities rather than at court.
