    Moscow’s three airports - Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo - have been fined a total of 190,000 rubles for failing to provide facilities for the disabled, the General Prosecutor of the Russia Federation office’s website reported.

    The airport terminals didn’t have specially-adapted rest rooms, wheelchair ramps, special telephone booths for the partially-sighted and hard of hearing and other essentials for disabled passengers, the air transportation division of the General Prosecutor’s office found.

    Moreover, not all airport car parks had designated the required 10 percent of parking spaces for the disabled.

     

    "It should be noted that the fines do not relieve businesses and officials of the obligation to correct those violations," the prosecutor’s statement reads.
