One of the main problems facing Russian truckers is the deterioration of their vehicles. This was announced at a press conference in Moscow yesterday by Head of the International Road Transport Union in Russia Mikhail Nizov.
He said that more than 60% of the Russian vehicles being used for international transportation do not even meet the lowest Euro-1 European standard and their use in Europe is therefore limited. Only 23% of vehicles meet this standard, Mr Nizov said, 15% meet Euro-2 standards and less than 1% of Russian vehicles meet the requirements of Euro-3 standards.
On the second day of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, a plenary meeting was held, in which Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan and IMF head Christine Lagarde took part
