Yes, I agree with you that without friends and the Russian language in Russia it is difficult to do business. However, there are bonuses that are not available in other countries. You can buy land for farming cheaply, you can open a bank account with 5 banks in one day, you can easily fictitiously marry to get citizenship, you can bring a lot of cash to the bank, and the bank will not ask where this money comes from and much more.

Could you link to the official gov site which displays the tax rates?

Hey. I think that there is no such information on the government website, it is recorded in the tax code of the Russian Federation. But on the website of the Tax Inspectorate, you can make a request for information.
