MOSCOW, June 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The All-Russian People’s Front (ONF), created and led by Russian President Vladimir Putin, suggests that Russian state-owned companies should not buy foreign-made cars, the ONF press service told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

A draft resolution that bans officials at all levels from purchasing cars manufactured outside the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan is already on the government’s table, the ONF said.

A co-chairman of the ONF Central Headquarters, Alexander Brechalov, said that “it would substantially cut the state’s spending and support the carmakers that operate and pay taxes in Russia.”

Last autumn ONF MP activists submitted a bill to the State Duma, the lower house of Russia's parliament, that set the maximum price for cars used by officials in the range of one to three million roubles ($29,000 to $87,000).
