• Russian truckers roll in for Moscow protest

    by  • 12/08/2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Hundreds of truckers have rolled into Moscow to protest against a new tax many say will leave them in poverty.

    The system was put in place in the middle of last month and drivers now fork out for the distance they drive as well as the road and petrol taxes they pay already.

    The government says the new tax is needed to maintain roads across the country.

    It’s the first nationwide protest to take place in years – and the government is taking it very seriously indeed.
