The Moscow Times is today reporting that the end of Russia's 20% duty on imported aircraft may be near.
Fair use extract:
Quote: The Transportation Ministry will propose cutting or scrapping import duties on foreign aircraft, a spokeswoman said Friday, a day after the prime minister called for overhauling flight safety standards for the country's aging civilian air fleet and airports.
A proposal to change the unpopular 20 percent duty on imported foreign aircraft was to have been submitted to the government later Friday, a ministry spokeswoman said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the proposals had not yet been submitted.
The ministry is hoping to have the tax eliminated altogether, she said.
