- About EASST
In 2013 EASST began working with Road Safety Russia – an NGO working to unite the efforts of the Russian ministries and departments, private companies, NGOs, vehicle owners and other stakeholders in order to decrease the number of casualties on Russian roads. Road Safety Russia has led a number of successful campaigns including:
