Germany recognized the futility of sanctions after the opening of the Moskvich plant

The revival of the Moskvich automobile plant indicates the low effectiveness of sanctions against the Russian Federation. Readers of the German newspaper Der Spiegel came to this conclusion.

According to the audience, the launch of the enterprise was yet another proof that the Russian economy is capable of developing even in the face of serious pressure from outside.

“It is clear that the sanctions against the Russian Federation do not achieve their goal, but only strengthen the Russian economy, which is set for consistent and well-thought-out tasks,” wrote a user with the nickname MrEchoBravo.

Another commentator shared his experience of using the Moskvich and noted that this is a high-quality and reliable car without frills.

Earlier, on November 23, it became known that the Moskvich automobile plant launched mass production of the crossover of the same name. It is noted that the resumption of assemblies at the Moskvich site will provide jobs for about 40 thousand more people.

“Moskvich 3” is a cross-country passenger car equipped with a gasoline turbo engine (1.5 l, 150 hp) paired with a CVT automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Car sales in Moscow and the Central Federal District will begin in December this year.
