13:23 23 September Kyiv, Ukraine

The Japanese automaker Toyota stops production in Russia - the company's plant in Shushary (Petersburg) has been operating for 15 years.

Russian media write about it.

According to the interlocutors of the newspaper, the automaker was not able to arrange the supply of components to the Russian Federation.
"Now the site will be mothballed and subsequently, possibly, sold, but the production of Toyota on it will not resume. The Moscow office of the concern will also be optimized: its employees and the plant staff will be offered increased compensation - from 12 salaries," the sources say.

At the same time, the company does not leave the Russian Federation.

In recent months, since the beginning of March, the plant of the automaker in Shushary has been idle due to logistical difficulties after the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine. The current decision is due to the inability to resume rhythmic deliveries, the interlocutors note.

Import of brand cars in Russia has been suspended.
