Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev supported the idea to temporarily allow the importation into the far East right-hand drive cars without installation of the system «Era-GLONASS».

Prime Minister on Friday met with acting Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako and presidential envoy to FEFD Yuri Trutnev, at the airport of Vladivostok. Trutnev noted that the system «Era-GLONASS» on RHD cars in the far East was not doing its job.

«The use of RHD is widespread. I can’t disagree with the fact that this system worked as planned, it is necessary that it has been integrated into the brains of the car – all the electronics were subordinate to the operation of this equipment. This can be done on normal only in the factory…, have this problem. Not very clear then what people are paying – I mean the unit if the effect is not achieved. You need to perform and in General to consider preparation of temporary importation of such vehicles,» — said Medvedev.

According to him, need to see how the process goes in Primorye and other regions of the far Eastern Federal district, where the use of such cars is widely spread. «Let the interim order will be prepared. Let’s see how it will work, then decide. I order your treatment ladies, then in Moscow, finally will solve,» — said Medvedev.

Earlier, the acting Governor of the region Oleg Kozhemyako reported that after July 1, 2019 registration imported from abroad cars will be impossible as long as the order of actions in this case are not spelled out. Deputy head of the Ministry of industry and trade Alexander Morozov reported that the Ministry will prepare proposals for changes in regulation that will allow the residents of Primorye choose not to install the system «ERA-GLONASS» on RHD cars imported from abroad for their own use.

Since the beginning of this year all sold cars in Russia are equipped with system «ERA-GLONASS», which allows you to track the vehicle’s position and, if necessary, to immediately send help to him.
