State Duma suggests that Russians can take abroad up to $10,000 without special licence

The State Duma amended the law on currency control during its plenary session on Friday. According to the amendment, Russian citizens travelling abroad can take $10,000 without a special licence.

The amendment was supported by 255 deputies, while 10 voted against it and 4 abstained.

According to presidential representative in the State Duma Alexander Kotenkov, the amendment approved by the deputies will result in carrying $150 bln from the country. He believes that the law will be rejected by the president, and the old threshold of $1,500 will remain.

While addressing the State Duma, First Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said their decision was "premature".

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
