The truck maker said in a statement it had “invested and developed a business in Russia for several decades and has a great responsibility for relationships with customers and, above all, for employees”.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and consequent export restrictions and sanctions had “changed the general business situation in Russia”.

On 1 September, Scania Group had assets of BSEK11 related to Russia and, last year, around 6% of group sales were attributable to the market.

The group had made provision for exiting Russia of BSEK 5.
