Deputies of the Astrakhan Regional Duma introduced amendments to the State Duma to the law “ On personal subsidiary plots '' (LPH), which propose to give the right to the regions to set quotas on the number of personal livestock. “ Many private household plots have more than 50 head of cattle, up to 1000 sheep, 40 horses … This indicates the actual implementation of entrepreneurial activity '', & mdash; says the document. Its authors suggest that private household plots register as individual entrepreneurs and pay taxes or “ alienate surplus livestock. ''
“ We have already passed the dispossession, and history has shown that it is impossible to act this way, & mdash; says expert of the Center for Agri-Food Policy of the RANEPA Professor Vasily Uzun . & mdash; Our private household plots are already disappearing. In the 90s, they provided 26% of agricultural products, now it is much less. Hence the problem of shortage of potatoes, carrots, etc. And now we still threaten with quotas? Of course, it is necessary to withdraw rich private household plots as farmers, but not by prohibitions, but by low taxes and simplified reporting. Today, the owner, who has become an individual entrepreneur, is immediately piled on by a dozen departments. In the pursuit of taxes, you can lose both agricultural products and peasants who will leave for the cities. ''
