Right-line Japanese are forever


The Eternal Russian question rapidly broke into the car media-space about what to do with the right-handed import of used cars from Japan. Our channel tried to understand this issue and made a forecast.

A few days ago in the Government of the Russian Federation discussed the issue of used Japanese imports and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev made his verdict. On the site of the government, he sounds like this: «Another question concerns the importation into the territory of Russia former in the use of vehicles by residents of the Far Eastern Federal District. I was requested by Yuri Petrovich

Translated from the official, we explain that the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation signed a decree of December 3, 2019 №2895-p, where

That is, until the end of next year, the Far Eastern can bring one right-handed used car from Japan. And since the Far Eastern district extends from Baikal and the Arctic Ocean to the Pacific coast, and its population is more than 8 million people, then this is without deducting children and old people is a potential audience for whom this decision of the country’s chief executive body is calculated.

A year earlier was taken a similar government order, the action of which ended the other day, namely, on November 21 of the current year.

Now the new delay, the new grandilan — December 3, 2020. The reason is that there are only two points to install this Era GLONASS on the territory of the DVFO.

According to the technical regulations of the Customs Union «On Safety of Wheel Vehicles», the action of which began in 2017, the ERA-GLONASS system should be installed on everything, as well as imported cars to Russia from abroad. So that customs can deliver used cars imported from abroad, for them there was a temporary order of action. On November 22, 2018, the Government of the Russian Federation introduced a moratorium on the installation of Era-Gallonass for residents of the Far Eastern District, but only for a year. If you rose in the news feed of that time, then amazing coincidences are detected. Look, on November 22, 2018 for the Far Eastern, the options for installing the alarm button have entered. On December 14 last year, the decision was seen on the transfer of the capital of the Far East from Khabarovsk to Vladivostok. On December 16 of last year, repeated elections of the governor of the Primorsky Territory are held.

We will not concern the political aspect of all these events of last year, but since then the situation with the installation of ERA-GLONASS has not moved from the original point.

First, the system is difficult to integrate into Japanese models, secondly, only two stations for installing «era» work in the Primorsky Krai, and it is problematic to cope with the amount of work. As a result, the mandatory installation of the system in the region is canceled for the second time. It turns out that the Far East lives and will live on a special law on a special law.

It is significant that Medvedev Prime Minister does not know what to do with this situation. We quote in

But it should be noted that in 2021 a new electoral cycle starts. This time in the State Duma of the Russian Federation. And here we are unfolding another intrigue. In order to «do not annoy» the electorate, which should make the right choice, in a year for sure today’s government order will have to be extended for another year with Deadline at the end of 2021.

«Strong nut» went to the leadership of the country from previous management decisions to import used right-hand drive cars from Japan. On the one hand, you can rejoice at the Far Eastern, because they are used to use high-quality and reliable Japanese cars, albeit used.
