Lada Taxis in Managua

MEXICO CITY &mdash Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega presented 87 Managua taxi cooperatives with 450 Lada Kalina cars Saturday.

"Next year we expect another 1,000 Russian cars as part of the modernization of Managua's taxi fleet," under a contract between the Nicaraguan Coruna company and AvtoVAZ, Ortega said. In addition, he said, 200 more cars were expected from the Kurgan car plant within weeks.

Nicaraguan officials are counting on the new cars to alleviate the severe transportation shortage in Managua.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
