'While to the officials the cars are delivered by the importer, the transportation to Crimea is covered by the Crimean dealers. And, even in spite of this, the final cost is absolutely the same as the importer recommends, so it does not differ even a bit from the car price on the mainland,' the Avtodel salon writes.
The salon belongs to Mikhail Smolyanov, a member of the self-proclaimed Crimean parliament from United Russia.
