SIMFEROPOL, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. A special economic zone in Crimea may be formed on the basis of the principles that were used to form such a zone in Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev told journalists on Monday.
“We have a base - a special economic zone in Kaliningrad, with certain nuances,” he said. “We want to minimize federal taxes, to reduce them practically to zero. But here we have a conflict of laws, so there should be an exemption.”
He also said that the Russian government was looking at creating a gambling zone in Crimea.
