Ru pres.gif


The President of Russia is usually seen in an armoured Mercedes-Benz S-Class<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref> stretched limousine. The first such model, a W140 variant, was purchased by Boris Yeltsin and has recently been superseded by a W221 model. The presidential motorcade will usually be escorted by police motorcycle outriders and a series of support vehicles including, but not limited to, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, standard S-Class models, BMW 5-Series and Volkswagen Caravelle.

Under the USSR, the General Secretary of the Communist Party was always driven in a Russian-built ZIL-41047,<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref> escorted by Chaika models. Two of the Zil limousines are still maintained in the Kremlin garage and occasionally seen in use.<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>
