Bogdan Corporation, one of the largest players on the Ukrainian automobile market, assembled 20,111 passenger cars in 2010, which is 40% up on 2009 (14,393 cars).
The corporation's spokesman, Serhiy Krasulia, told Interfax-Ukraine that 921 Bogdan 2310 Pickup commercial vans were produced. Bogdan 2310 van production started in December 2009, when six were made.
Krasulia said that in December 2010 the corporation produced 2,870 passenger cars, which is 3.7 up on December 2009, including 95 Bogdan 2310 vans.
"Thus, the corporation met its target of producing over 20,000 passenger cars, despite difficulties with supplies of car parts in the summer of 2010 due to fires in central Russia," he said.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
