Vedomosti – According to Vedomosti newspaper, Russia’s biggest car manufacturer: AvtoVAZ is getting ready for new layoffs, due to the negative trend in the market.

Andersson has expressed his concerns about the course of the market with the following words: “We have manufactured only 28,000 automobiles in May. The April figure was 42,000.”
