  1. Haha, Im not from Kazakhstan. I live in New York City but I am very interested in the car markets where Lada is sold such as Russia and Central Asia. I had stumbled upon this link somehow and knew that you could use it on your blog. I travel back to Russia once a year and pay close attention to the old and new Russian cars.
    Thank you for running a great Blog!

    P.S When I travel to Russia in a month i can supply you with any details that you may be interested in.

    1. Hi Misha,

      Hey Misha,
      Thank you so much for your response! Glad you’re enjoying the blog!
      I would love more info about the Russian market, am very very curious about the launch of the Lada Granta there at the moment, so any early figures you could gather would be tremendous help… Where in Russia do you go back to every year? Apart from Uzbekistan, and now Kazakhstan thanks to you, i don’t really have much info on CIS countries, so anything you have about these markets (Belarus, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkmenistan etc…) I would love to hear from you!!

    1. Hi Misha,
      This is great! Thank you so much for sharing this information! I will update my Kazakhstan post tonight and mention that you provided the link to the source so you get the credit you deserve!

      thanks again
