MOSCOW, February 1. /TASS/. Foreign companies working on the territories of other countries are obliged to pay taxes where they work and Russia should definitely apply the principle at home, German Klimenko, President Putin's advisor on the Internet told the Russian News Service radio on Monday.
"I'd like to know how much Google earns on the territory of Russia and to add 18% to it," he said. "I'm really interested in the figure. When we learn it then we'll make conclusions."
"As a private person I think there should be no doubt equality of Russian and foreign companies before law," Klimenko said adding that the the practice of taxation for foreign companies working is absolutely normal in Western countries.
"That's the VAT where a commodity is sold," he said. "It has been introduced throughout Europe. Games cost $5 to $6 everywhere. They've introduced and everything has remained in the proper places.".
