Supporting the thesis that, that not all crushing is criminal, she stressed, that “in the case of bloggers, business fragmentation is outright tax evasion, creating an obstacle to the investigation of criminal cases". “Payment for replicated courses went to a single center, from which it was further distributed to a set of IP, who work on a simplified taxation system", – the expert revealed the mechanism.
