Russian government purchases of foreign autos are forbidden
Prime Minister of Russian federation Dmitry Medvedev has already signed a resolution that forbids government to purchase foreign autos and other vehicles. These measures have been taken in order to let Russian producers reach high competitive level in their sphere and replace foreign producers in different branches.

Medvedev has also mentioned that huge amount of budget funds is provided annually for purchasing different technique. It would be much better is this money will be provided to Russian producers rather than foreign companies. The only condition is that Russian products are at least of the same quality as their foreign competitors.

This resolution includes not only purchasing autos for deputies, but also such vehicles as public transport, vehicles for emergency services such as fire brigades and ambulances, etc. This will lead to a new level of cooperation with foreign companies as well as concentrate a bigger part of production on the territory of Russian Federation.

Arkadiy Dvorkin agreed that such resolution will help to concentrate governmental purchases on Russian producers. This level is planned to be increase up to 30-40% and it will be up to 60-70% by 2018.
