The reason for this decision was the frequent underestimation of the cost of machines and the use of various “gray” supply schemes from Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. EAEU members are offered the opportunity to establish a common control mechanism and additional assessment of customs duties by April 1 of this year.
The authors of the document argue that the current situation with the assessment of customs duties neutralizes the measures taken to develop the domestic automotive industry in Russia and at the same time reduces revenues to the federal budget.
According to Autostat, as of April 2023, the share of new cars imported into Russia from Kazakhstan was 12.6%, 3.8% from Belarus, 3.4% from Kyrgyzstan and 3% from Armenia.
