These measures apply to individuals entering Finland from Russia by car
Finns were banned “gasoline tourism” to Russia
Finnish authorities have banned citizens from importing oil products from Russia. These measures apply to individuals entering Finland from Russia by car.
In Finland, before the coronavirus pandemic, “gasoline tourism” was popular; due to the significant cheapness of automotive fuel in Russia.
Now the rules have changed. “Fuel from Russia can only be imported in a conventional fuel tank of a car,” Finnish customs officer Tuula Lähderinne explained to RIA Novosti.
Finland was the leader in the European Union in terms of the cost of car fuel in May. The average price of gasoline (E95) was 2.37 euros per liter, diesel fuel – 2.24 euros per liter.
