Looks like a Checker cab that endured a Moscow winter. (if the winter doesn’t slow it down the aerodynamics [basic square] will.)
Will the cars be stealthily subsidized by the Russian Taxpayers?
Has Alexey Krivoruchko announced that he has secured funding to buy back all the stock so he can run the company the way he wants without the interference of the stockholders??
