According to Leningrad Oblast Grigory Dvas, Ford could begin producing Land Rovers and Volvos at their Russian facility. The news came out at a meeting he held with Japanese businessmen, no doubt appealing to their desire to beat the Americans to the punch in terms of cracking the Russian market wide-open. According to Russia's Interfax news agency, Dvas claims that Ford's already been training product specialists in the methods of construction required. Man alive, it's like Lend-Lease all over again!
