Head of Dagestan instructs to check reports on extortions from truckers at customs
Acting Head of Dagestan Vladimir Vasilyev has instructed to check the information on problems at the customs terminal on the border with Azerbaijan, which, it is reported, are connected with unlawful extortions from truckers.
