Starting February 5, owner-drivers from a number of Armenia's northern districts have been pressing for non-increase in import duties on cars imported from Georgia.

Several dozens of cars are moving toward Yerevan with their way blocked by the police.

"The protest rally is attended by nearly 400 people stating they won't leave the square unless the road is released. The demonstrators protest against rise in cost and mandatory third-party liability insurance", - Levon Barsegyan, a local journalist explained.

Presently, the central part of Gyumri town is shut off because of the confrontation between the police and owner-drivers.

The drivers seek reduction in import tax on cars from Georgia and abolishment of compulsory motor insurance since many residents of Armenia's northern districts have cars with Georgian number plates.
