Citizens of Armenia with an Armenian driver`s license are fined 10  thousand rubles. The Minister of Justice shrugs his shoulders.

ArmInfo.. Since June 1, Russia has entered into force a ban on the use of foreign driving licenses by persons working in the territory of the country in the field of  transportation. At the same time, the ban does not apply to citizens  of the EEA countries: Kyrgyzstan, Belarus and Kazakhstan, where  Russian is the second official language.

According to the Haykakan Zhamanak newspaper, citizens who drive a  taxi with an Armenian driver's license are already fined 10, and the  business executives they work for are 50,000 rubles.  The Armenian  authorities do not take measures to protect the rights of their  citizens. And Justice Minister David Harutyunyan, shrugging his  shoulders, only told reporters that driving permits are considered a  national document.

"The issue is governed by conventions, the country may allow the use  of the driver's license of another country, or may not allow it.Our  citizens can bypass this obstacle in Russia by obtaining an  international driving license, however, in this case they will not be  able to perform paid work,"- stated the Minister.
