Belarus-Russia Union State-wide car insurance policy coverage suggested

MOSCOW, 20 January (BelTA) – Parliamentarians suggest expanding the coverage of mandatory vehicle insurance policies, which are issued in Belarus and Russia, onto the entire territory of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. The relevant initiative was discussed at a session of the Legislation and Regulations Commission of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia on 20 January, BelTA has learned.

According to the press service of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia, the MPs underlined the high political and public significance of the matter. It was noted that providing legislative support for enabling equal rights of citizens of Belarus and Russia and enabling as favorable conditions as possible for realizing these rights in the Union State represent some of the most important tasks of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. Efforts to harmonize insurance laws and regulations are not an exception. The MPs are of the opinion that the resolution of the problem of Union State-wide coverage of vehicle insurance policies will become a substantial contribution to the formation of the unified legal space of Belarus and Russia.

The MPs decided to take a closer look at the possibility of Union State-wide recognition of mandatory vehicle insurance policies. They also decided to study the system of compensation for harm caused to lives, health, or property of car crash victims when Belarusian vehicles are driven in Russia and vice versa. The relevant queries will be sent to government agencies and ministries as well as Belarusian and Russian insurance companies. Deliberations will continue during the next session of the Legislation and Regulations Commission of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia.

The session was held as a videoconference. Representatives of the Standing Committee of the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Belarusian and Russian government agencies and ministries took part in it in addition to members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union State of Belarus and Russia.
