“I suggested that the commercial fee for rental real estate and equipment be charged without taking into account the lessor’s profit. If there are maintenance costs, depreciation, they are covered. But if there is profit, it should not be paid for this period. The second proposal – we recognize the situation, associated with coronavirus, force majeure and we release everyone from civil liability (from paying fines, penalties, etc.), “Getmantsev also noted.
