A driver did not like the tariffs on the M-11 Moscow-St. Petersburg highway and threatened the pay point staff with a rifle, Moskovsky Komsomolets reports.
The incident occurred on the afternoon of November 15th. The Muscovite, 53, is an engineer at a machine tool company. He came to the customer service office at the Moscow Ring Road leading to the Sheremetyevo Airport.

The man is prosecuted and an investigation has been started.
The State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region is waiting for changes. The new chief from Moscow - General Plugin - plans to upend the St. Petersburg policemen completely. Interior Minister Kolokoltsev approves this idea.
