Negotiations between VW and Russian GAZ, that are apparently underway, should end with the agreement to jointly build a factory in Russia.

Lada Niva with VW 2.0 TDI engine and German quality control in production is what is coming to my mind right now. :)

What with the GM (Chevrolet) partnership with Lada?

It seems that GAZ will only assemble VW models for Russian market in their facilities.
