The draft law on the regulation of the crypto-currency market, published today, does not mention taxation. As explained in the Ministry of Finance, this issue will be considered in a separate "satellite law". This is reported by TASS.

Now, this issue is not defined in the legislation. And objectively, this is a big problem that will be worked through, of course. There will be at least some legislative framework to define in the Tax Code. Now there is a coordination of the law, but it is not yet fully discussed.
