'Do not overload truck drivers with exactions!'

On 17 December, during a large press conference Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stressed that long-distance truck drivers must not be overcharged with various fees, taxes and exactions. At the same time, they should be brought out of quasi-legal schemes.

The President noted that earlier High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova talked about help and support in solving the problem of truck drivers, who expressed their disagreement with the implementation of Platon system.

For reference: in November truck drivers held rallies against the imposition of road charges. On 2 December, at the meeting with drivers Ella Pamfilova promised to follow up on the situation. On 10 December, during the personal meeting with the President Ms Pamfilova discussed difficulties and possible solutions of decreasing fees charged from truck drivers.
