Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has expanded the list of industries affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The list includes passenger traffic by rail, sea and inland water transport.

As noted in the explanatory note to the government decree, the demand for such passenger transportation has significantly decreased due to coronavirus restrictions. Thus, in the first half of April, the passenger traffic on long-distance trains decreased by 77% compared to the same period in 2019. A similar situation has developed in shipping by sea and inland waterways.

Now enterprises from these industries will be able to receive a deferral for the payment of all taxes (except VAT) and lease payments. They are also entitled to interest-free loans for urgent needs and payment of salaries, soft loans at 2%. Also, representatives of small and medium-sized businesses from the affected industries can count on a deferral in the payment of insurance premiums and restructuring of payments that were formed during the period of granting a deferral in the payment of taxes and insurance premiums.
