Moscow authorities decided to keep entrance to city charge-free
The Moscow City Administration has decided not to introduce a charge for entry to the territory of Moscow for motorists.
"We do not consider this issue," Spokeswoman for Moscow Mayor Gulnara Penkova said to the media.
Deputy of the Moscow Mayor Maksim Liksutov also stressed that the Moscow authorities have no plans to charge for entry to Moscow or some of its parts.
Let us recall that at the end of this week, the State Duma passed a bill of the Russian government in its first reading, which grants regional and municipal authorities the right to introduce charge for entrance to highways.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
