Our site is dedicated to tourism and travels. But the introduction of tolls on roads concerns also visitors of our site. The fact that charging extends to all car owners. The number of toll roads in Russia is increasing. Traveling in Russia becomes more expensive. Recently put into operation the first section of the toll highway Moscow - St. Petersburg. Earlier become paid some sections of the road from Moscow to the Black Sea coast.

Toll roads do not only make traveling on the territory of Russia more expensive (on the territory of the largest country in the world). It also widens the gap between rich and poor.
