Limitations on import of certain types of cars will be introduced in Customs Union countries in June 2012, Autonews.
Full ban is planned for import of “wrong hand drive” (right-hand), “wrong lights” (incorrectly set headlights) and “wrong direction lights” (red direction lights). This regulation is clearly stated in the technical rules for Customs Union countries. The ban will come into effect right after inauguration of the new president of Russia.
The ban will be related to the cars aimed for Japanese market and American cars like Cadillac or Lincoln.
On January 2011 it was reported that right-hand cars will not be banned in Kazakhstan. Head of Kazakhstan Independent Drivers Union Eduard Edokov noted that right-hand cars cannot be fully banned, as Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus are planning to enter the WTO.
