Today it became known that state-owned companies may be prohibited from purchasing foreign cars for their employees if they have Russian analogues.
In general, we are talking about a ban on the purchase of imported vehicles, as well as the products of metallurgy and heavy engineering. This measure should affect companies in which the state's share in the authorized capital exceeds 50 percent.
This news caused a wide resonance in the press, but it turned out that the final decision on this initiative had not yet been made. The corresponding proposal was prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, but now it is being approved by the Ministry of Economic Development.

The Kremlin reacted positively to the procurement of domestic machines in state-owned companies

Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said that the presidential administration’s proposal to purchase Russian products was supported by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

Attempt to transplant officials on "Volga"

In the late 1990s, an attempt was made in Russia to force state officials to drive domestic cars. The idea of ​​transferring officials to the "Volga", belonged to the then Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov. This attempt ended in nothing. As Nemtsov later noted, his initiative was not implemented, including due to the fact that President Boris Yeltsin was driving a Mercedes at that time.
