This measure will also apply to goods moved across the customs border by individuals.

As Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the EEC Board, stressed, this measure would contribute to forming the EAEU e-vehicle market, and developing their production and charging infrastructure for them.

"First of all, infrastructure and charging stations should be created ahead of schedule in order to form the EAEU e-vehicle market.

The second issue is manufacturing our own e-vehicles.

Three countries are already actively engaged in this process," the Head of the EEC Board noted.
