Another EU country joins the ban on cars with Russian license plates: what is known
Bulgaria has joined the European Union (EU) member states that have banned the entry of cars with Russian license plates. In doing so, it became the first non-Schengen country to support this recommendation of the European Commission.
The ban on the entry of cars and trucks will take effect by the end of the day. This was announced by the head of the Bulgarian Border Police Anton Zlatanov, 24 Hours reports.
"We have been working very actively from Thursday to yesterday. I am confident that by the end of the day the ban on Russian cars entering our country will be in effect in Bulgaria, and I want to add that it has been in effect for trucks for several months," Zlatanov said.
The ban was introduced by the European Commission on September 11, and on Saturday, September 30, MP Delian Peevski of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms called on the government to immediately implement it. It is already in effect in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Finland, and Norway.
Moreover, the ban applies not only to cars but also to goods. Zlatanov could not specify how many Russian cars enter our country every month, but he said that they are few.
