www.guardian.co.uk -- VLADIVOSTOK, Russia, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Riot police broke up a demonstration in Russia\'s Far East region on Saturday against higher import duties on used foreign cars, highlighting official sensitivity to any protests linked to growing economic hardship. Hundreds chanted in unison in the centre of the Pacific port city of Vladivostok, 6,000 Km (3,750 miles) east of Moscow, and held up posters, some saying \"Bloodsuckers!\" and \"No to duty increases\". The protest is the second this week in Vladivostok, an important gateway to the Pacific rim economies and major importer of used Japanese cars.
