Strike of fuel carriers causes kilometer-long queue at Sosnovka checkpoint

A queue of trucks formed at Sosnovka checkpoint due to a strike of carriers of fuel and lubricants. The head of the Association of Freight Carriers Cholponbek Zhanbaev told 24.kg news agency.

According to him, the carriers are dissatisfied with inefficient fight against corruption and with the fines they have to pay from April 1 in the absence of insurance certificate for transportation of dangerous cargoes.

«We are against this, this law had existed for a long time, but had not worked. And now we are forced to pay. This is another loophole for corruption,» Cholponbek Zhanbaev said.

The compulsory insurance was introduced officially on September 1. Fines are imposed since April 1.

The head of the Association of Freight Carriers noted that they would not do their work until the authorities not fulfill their demands.
