Simon Warburton was in contact with the trailer and agricultural machinery manufacturer based in the huge country on Russia's southern border.
AvtoVAZ says it saw sales rise 4.7% in October to 40,207, with nearly 38,000 sold in Russia, up 3.5% compared to September.
Russia's car market faces two years with little prospect of significant recovery according to the head of Ford's operations there.

AvtoVAZ says it is looking to the success of airline, Aeroflot, as a benchmark to improve its image and change consumer perception of its products.
AvtoVAZ CEO, Bo Andersson, concedes the scale of the redundancies he is implementing is "difficult," but points to already vastly improving productivity levels among the workforce at the automaker's Togliatti plant 520 miles South East of Moscow.
