MOSCOW, December 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow’s unpredictable traffic jams force deputies of the State Duma to walk over long distances and to consider trips in the metro as an option.
Friday, Communist MP Anatoly Lokot called the fellow-deputies’ attention to the transport problems. As he asked for permission to speak at the Duma session, he told Speaker Sergei Naryshkin that a serious problem with the MPs’ transportation had taken clear contours.
“We’re ending the session now and some of us will board flights /at the airports/,” Lokot said, adding that “we have problems getting a car throughout the workweek.”
He had to face the problem just one more time himself. “My flight takes off at 10 but it’s not ruled out I’ll be late. I can assure you problems with transport continued throughout the week and many MPs will confirm it, too.”
After Naryshkin had asked Lokot about his plans for departure, the floor was taken by Alexander Ageyev of A Just Russia party.
“I do recommend to all my fellow-deputies here taking the metro,” he said adding he had just returned from a public function.
“The traffic is in a total deadlock and I do recommend to all of you to make trips by metro,” he said. “I personally have had to cover a distance of several kilometers on foot and I’d like to call your attention to the situation.
