Thus, according to Sokolov, “the question of fees is examined as part of a shared integrated approach only with respect to vehicles, does not involve the charging of fees to individuals and is not a matter of the nearest future”.

The Minister assured that the first will be a thorough examination, public discussion and analyzed the results.

In the end, on upgraded crossings can appear not only duty-free shops, and ATMs, capsule hotels, pharmacies and other services.
