The NAS noted that the commission for issuing a loan from large car dealers reaches 9% of the loan amount, which is one of the factors behind the sharp increase in the cost of cars.

"It is necessary to limit the size of the commission for issuing a loan at the level of other sales channels, where the commission does not exceed 4%," the message on Telegram says.

Earlier, the Ministry of Industry and Trade listed the brands of cars recommended for use by officials.

The list includes the Russian brands Lada, Moskvich, Aurus, Evolute and UAZ, as well as the Chinese brand Haval.

Jan Heitseer, vice president of the National Automobile Union, told RT that an official should drive the same car as an ordinary resident.
