00 dnr. donetsk pr licence plates. 22.05.15


Today, at a press conference in Donetsk, Colonel Vladimir Yefimov, the head of the DNR GAI* MVD, announced as he showed samples of new DNR license plates, “We’ll start issuing new license plates will start on 26 May. However, we’re not requiring mandatory replacement of Ukrainian license plates yet. To register a vehicle with a new state number, one must go to the DNR MREO, fill out an application, and pay the registration fee. After we make checks in our databases, we’d issue a DNR licence plate”. Regular DNR plates will be white with numbers and “DPR” in the Latin alphabet (in black), MChS vehicle plates will have black numbers only, MVD vehicles will have blue licence plates, and public transport vehicles will have plates with yellow numbers. As explained by Deputy Interior Minister Nikolai Kryuchenko, at first, new auto registrations would address issues with stolen cars. To date, agencies have some 1,500 reports of missing vehicles. Auto registrations in the DNR will cost 372 Grivnya (896 Roubles. 112 Renminbi. 1,140 INR. 18 USD. 22 CAD. 23 AUD. 16.30 Euros. 11.60 UK Pounds) or 744 Roubles (92 Renminbi. 945 INR. 15 USD. 18.25 CAD. 19 AUD. 13.50 Euros. 9.60 UK Pounds); new driving licences with exam will cost 103 Grivnya (248 Roubles. 31 Renminbi. 316 INR. 5 USD. 6 CAD. 6.50 AUD. 4.50 Euros. 3.20 UK Pounds) or 204 Roubles (25 Renminbi. 260 INR. 4 USD. 5 CAD. 5.25 AUD. 3.70 Euros. 2.60 UK Pounds).

There is a 16 percent discount if one pays in Roubles rather than in Grivnya. This is a clever way to get people to use Roubles in place of “Ukrainian” funny money, wot?

Sergei Yolkin’s World: Winter Tyres for Your Favourite Car

Winter Tyres for Your Favourite Car

Sergei Yolkin



If you look at the licence plate under the grill, it says, “No, no”. That must mean that they fit “just right”.


In anticipation of the first snowfall of the year, which is expected on Saturday, Moscow motorists are beginning to change the summer tyres on their vehicles, but our RIA-Novosti correspondent found out that not that many were in the auto repair shops. Earlier, experts at the Phobos Weather Centre told RIA-Novosti that the first snow of the season’s expected in Moscow on Saturday, and the first below-freezing temperature will come on Sunday night, the mercury will fall to -2 Celsius (28.5 degrees Fahrenheit). In turn, the State Automobile Inspectorate (GAI) urged drivers to change over to winter tyres before the snow falls, for safety reasons. According to the UGIBDD (Directorate of the State Inspectorate of Road Traffic Safety) statistics, the onset of cold weather, which causes ice to form on the roads, significantly increases the number of road accidents, most of which can be traced to drivers neglecting to change over to winter tyres fast enough. After the first snowfall, the number of those going into the shop to change their tyres will increase significantly.
