It’s a global issueThanks for that. I was looking at the drop in car production in Russia- in particular a breakdown by brand. I can't find that now, but the reduction is pretty shocking. One would assume that for most brands (including russian ones) repairs will be increasingly difficult as they are dependent on russian imports.
So as well as not being able to build new vehicles, the existing cars and lorries will progressively start to fail. And of course aircraft as previously discussed. At some point that will start to have massive secondary impacts on Russia's whole logistics and distribution networks. Then their remaining domestic industries will fail.
Their rail network will probably cope better and I know that is big there, but still need local distribution by road.
The number of new cars sold in Europe declined for the 10th month in a row as supply chain issues continue to take a heavy toll on car production, industry data showed on Wednesday.
