As reported by the Fontanka.ru, March 6, 2012, the government of South Ossetia decided to remove the posts of customs and immigration services from the village of Upper Ruk. An appropriate instruction was given by the acting head of South Ossetia Vadim Brovtsev.
The post of the immigration department of the Interior Ministry is expected to be moved to the locality of Vanel and merged with a GAI station. The customs post will be abolished. According to the edition, Russian customs officials will send information on products and goods, crossing the border, to their South Ossetian colleagues in Tskhinval, who will decide on the need to declare goods and levy taxes.
As recalled by the RBC, Russia and South Ossetia have signed an agreement on the abolition of import duties on fuel and lubricants, vegetables and fruits, artesian water, and a number of components for mechanical engineering. Acting President of South Ossetia Vadim Brovtsev announced this yesterday. "We've signed an agreement on the trade regime. This will give us an opportunity to increase trade turnover and our production in order to enter the Russian market on more favorable terms", Brovtsev said.
He added that currently the cost of fuel in South Ossetia reaches 35 ruble per liter. According to him, after the agreement comes into force, cost of diesel fuel, gasoline and lubricants will immediately reduce.
