Since the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine, the Russian auto industry has begun to experience problems with many auto parts and components due to Western sanctions. In addition, many Western automakers have announced the suspension of activities in Russia.
Thus, Volvo has suspended deliveries of cars to the Russian market until further notice, “taking into account the potential risks and sanctions.” The German carmaker Volkswagen (combines Volkswagen, Skoda, Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley and Ducati brands) has temporarily suspended deliveries of cars to Russian dealers until further notice. General Motors also suspended the export of its cars to Russia, and Daimler Truck froze cooperation with Russian KAMAZ (the company owns 15% of the Russian manufacturer).
The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov previously admitted that Russia may have to say goodbye to a number of foreign automakers forever. “We may have to say goodbye to someone, unfortunately, because we cannot wait indefinitely,” he warned. According to the minister, a non-functioning enterprise is non-payment of taxes and degradation of production. The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade expressed hope that the parties will be able to come to a common decision by the end of March and the beginning of April.
