SCHNEIDER GROUP experts recommend you to follow the Mayor’s instructions, as the regulatory authorities are now increasingly checking companies for compliance with the current restrictive measures. At the same time, non-compliance with them may entail, for example, bringing the company to administrative responsibility in the form of a fine of up to RUB 300,000 or even suspend business operations for up to 90 calendar days in the worst case scenario.
