Russian Truckers Jam Roads in Moscow Traffic Protest

  • Daniel Schearf

A massive traffic jam formed Friday on Moscow’s Ring Road after police blocked a column of trucks driving at low speed to protest a doubling of road tolls and high fines for not paying. Despite the disruption in the capital, ordinary Russians voiced support for the truckers' actions, which analysts say is a new challenge for authorities. VOA's Daniel Schearf reports from Moscow.
