YABLOKO joins the action of the Russian motorists

Statement by YABLOKO's Chairman
April 14, 2010

The YABLOKO party supports the action of the Federation of Russia’s Motorists targeted at introducing amendments into the traffic rules regulating the use of special signals on officials’ cars.

The recent developments on the Russian roads, in particular, a scandal with Presidential Advisor (the post represents virtually a kind of honourable discharge) abusing his right of preferential passage shows the importance of this action and its public importance.

YABLOKO insists that stopping traffic at roads [so that high officials could freely pass], use of flashers and other traffic advantages should be prohibited for all the cars except those of emergency, President’s and Prime Minister’s.
