The lower house of Russia's parliament on Wednesday gave its final approval to tax hikes proposed by the finance ministry that will see extra progressive income tax rates, corporation tax raised to 25% from 20% and new mineral extraction taxes. The tax hikes, mostly targeting companies and the wealthy, may add an extra $30 billion to next year's budget revenue, allowing Moscow to further ratchet up spending and finance its war in Ukraine without compromising fiscal stability.
