strange, Kia Motors does not show a plant in Russia in there monthly production figures - they have one in China, Slovakia and USA but no mention of one in Russia, unless its some sort of joint venture. They have three in south Korea.

Update: Yes, its a joint-venture with Avtotor Holdings Ltd and Magna International which also involves BMW, GM, Opel, Kia and Hyundai.

it is like final joint assembly plant. This way kia and others eliminate high taxes for new cars in Russia, I guess. 2013 EX premium costs ~$45-50K there

Holy crap!!! An EX premium is the highest model there though, right? The SX is exclusive to North America?

Why are they just standing there letting it burn with all those fire extinguishers around? I will never understand Russians.

That's like the fire department in my northwest Michigan town. They'll stand around and have a cup of coffee, wait for the media to show up...THEN start fighting the fire. Or in the winter, maybe throw a few snowballs at it and save the occasional smoldering cat.
