P. ix., Сн. ii. REDUCTION, &c., OF CUSTOMS DUTIES. 349

III. Persons temporarily fulfilling the duties of heads of foreign
embassies and legations, or having provisional powers as resident
ministers, charges d’affaires, or diplomatic agents, enjoy the same
exemption from the payment of customs duties as the persons they
replace. The proportional rate of exemption from customs duties is
fixed, in advance, every three months.

IV. Councillors, secretaries, and commercial agents attached to
foreign embassies and legations, military and naval agents, attaches
to embassies and legations, and Consuls of all grades of the service
sent by foreign governments are allowed an exemption of customs
duties on their arrival in Russia on all personal and household
property, of 750 roubles for each individual and 1,350 roubles when
accompanied by a family.

V. Naval and military attaches of foreign embassies and legations
are, in addition to the privilege specified in § IV., allowed a further
exemption from customs duties of 1,500 roubles for each period of five
years of their residence in Russia.

VI. Foreign ambassadors, ministers plenipotentiary, resident
ministers, charges d’affaires and diplomatic agents, are entitled to
receive from abroad articles, the importation of which is prohibited
by the customs tariff1 during the first year of their residence in Russia,
without requiring any authorisation, and, in subsequent years, with
proper authorisation, which is obtained through diplomatic channels.
Prohibited articles, the importation of which is not authorised, may
be returned abroad.

VII. Articles of foreign origin, the importation and circulation
of which in Russia is only permitted subject to the observation of
certain special legislative dispositions, or by special permission of the
competent authorities (Regulation of the 15th May 1901, Art. 194)
are delivered to persons described in sections (c) and of § I. and in
§ III. without observing the formalities prescribed above, while articles
made from precious metals and usually subject to assay are delivered
without being assayed.

VIII. The privileges specified in §§ II.-VII. are granted to the
persons indicated only while they retain their official position and
on their written declaration that the articles imported by them are
intended for their own private use or that of their families.

IX. Articles sent from abroad and addressed to foreign ambassadors,
ministers plenipotentiary, resident ministers, charges d’affaires,
diplomatic agents and members of diplomatic corps holding equal rank
with them, during the first year of their residence in Russia, are exempt
from examination at the customs offices. In all other cases, articles
sent from abroad and addressed to any of the persons indicated in
§§ II.-V. are subject to a summary and expeditious examination.

X. Scientific, artistic and literary productions forwarded from
abroad and addressed to any of the persons indicated in §§ II.-V. or
to members of their families, are not subject to examination by the
censor.
