Owners of imported cars with foreign registration blocking traffic in Kyiv (Video)
Ukrainian owners of imported cars with foreign registration plates blocked traffic in the center of Kyiv on November 20.
"Cars with foreign registration plates blocked traffic in the morning. In this regard, changes have been introduced to the public transport timetable in Kyiv," the local municipal enterprise Kyivpastrans wrote on Facebook on November 20.
The cars also blocked traffic in the government quarter.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian owners of cars with foreign registration plates on November 13 announced a new large-scale protest campaign as of November 20, demanding amendments to recently passed bills on excise tax on passenger cars. They insist on a reduction in customs clearance costs for Ukrainians who have bought their cars abroad.
The public movement behind the protest campaign, NGO Auto Euro Sila, announced its indefinite "act of civil disobedience" in 46 cities of Ukraine.
