Government pushes for car fee to raise money


Speaking at the House of Representatives on Friday, Mikhail Myasnikovich announced the car fee rates. “It will be 390 thousand roubles a year for a Zhiguli, 650 thousands – for a Volkswagen and 1 million – for a Mercedes. The money will be spent on road repairs,” Interfax-West quotes Myasnikovich as saying.

Mikhail Myasnikovich asked MPs to support this unpopular measure.
