Production at Stellantis in Russia has been halted.

Because of tightening sanctions and logistical challenges, the Stellantis group has decided to halt production in Russia.

As a result, Stellantis’ production in Russia has been halted. The group formed by the merger of PSA and Fiat Chrysler lays out the details of its decision in a press release.

“In order to ensure full compliance with all cross-sanctions and to protect its employees, Stellantis has decided to suspend its industrial activity in Kaluga,” writes Stellantis, “following the day-to-day reinforcement of cross-sanctions and the logistical difficulties encountered on a daily basis.”

“Stellantis condemns violence and supports any action aimed at restoring peace,” the company, which sells fifteen different car brands, adds.

This decision comes as no surprise, as the group’s leader, Carlos Tavares, announced it in late March. “The Stellantis factory in Kaluga, Russia, will be forced to close due to a component shortage, which will not improve the world,” he said.
