At the first stage, we will be engaged in the SKD assembly of machines from countries friendly to us, at the second stage – a deeper localization of this production, well, in parallel with this process, without directly waiting for any first results, from today we begin to work on creating our own platform [для] electric car called “Moskvich”.
