Hello Russia news Freepers. Tired of all this talk about companies hiding money offshore and not paying taxes? If there is one man who can make some noise about this, it won't be Obama. It'll be Putin. He already is taking over from British PM David Cameron who first made overtures to the fact that offshoring was unfair.

The only reason these “dictators” are going after those offshore accounts is so they can their grubby hands on it. It’s not about budget shortages or fairness. It’s about seizing something they hink theyre entitled to because they say so and finding a way to funnel it into their own pocket. That’s how arrogant sociopathic narcissists think.
The irony is that this is the same person(Putin) that gave Depardieu Russian citizenship by executive order - not long after Depardieu gave up French citizenship for tax reasons.
Yeah, nothing will keep us more free than international cooperation to ensure double taxation and confiscation.
It’s the same thing obama did about the secret Swiss bank accounts and then used the information to blackmail the holders of those accounts into compliance. (my opinion)
True. But this is different, though. You and I can be millionaires in the U.S. and have high taxes and prefer to live in Costa Rica so we can pay less. But if you and I are living on the Isle of Mann, making money from Russia steel, incorporating the company in Cyprus, and paying nothing in taxes...that’s different. We’re not doing that. Depardeiau or however you spell his name, he wasnt doing that. Gov’s want to crack down on that to bring in more revenue to, ideally, use it for good. Bwah ha ha hah aha hahahaha!!!!
