Russian car lovers protest higher tariffs

Thousands of car lovers rallied on Sunday in Russia's far eastern city of Vladivostok to protest a government decision to raise tariffs on imported foreign automobiles.
      The demonstrations were held to protest a decree signed Wednesday by the country's Prime Minister that will temporarily raise import tariffs on foreign cars in a bid to help Russian automakers.
      About 3,000 people gathered in the city centre to hold signs with slogans like "Against Tariffs" as passing drivers honked their horns in solidarity. Meanwhile at the Vladivostok airport more than 3,000 people gathered for an unexpectedly large protest, forcing airport authorities to summon police to maintain order.
