Instead of cars, they will give guns. Kalashnikov will take Lada collectors


At the Lada plant in Izhevsk, there is still a position in the production of cars (work resumed at the main plant in Togliatti). Workers responsible for the assembly of the latest Lada Vesta will not wait idle for the resumption of car production. Thanks to the agreement with the Kalashnikov weapons concern, Lada will transfer them to the weapons factory. Instead of Lada, they will collect Kalashnikov assault rifles.

According to the Russian magazine “Za rulem”, 80 Lada fitters will initially find employment in the assembly of weapons. But this is not the end. The message mentions the development of cooperation as the arms manufacturing industry has to deal with the increase in the production of weapons ordered by the authorities.

The Lada plant in Izhevsk was responsible in the AvtoWAZ concern for the production of the latest Lada Vesta models (sedan, station wagon and Cross variant). After the introduction of Western sanctions, work at the plant was suspended due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Currently, Lada has only managed to restart the assembly of the cheapest Grant model, which is built at a factory in Togliatti.
