Stolen KamAZ Trucks Recovered

Dozens of KamAZ trucks that were stolen by gunmen in Ukraine earlier this month have been recovered, the company said Friday in a statement on its website.

A spokesman for KamAZ, Russia's largest truck manufacturer, said they were informed on Thursday that the Ukrainian authorities had tracked down the 43 trucks.

The vehicles were on their way from Chernihiv, 140 kilometers north of Kiev, to Kazakhstan on March 16 when a group of armed men halted the convoy and drove them away.

The men, reported to be members of the nationalist Right Sector party, seized the trucks in retaliation against Russia's annexation of the Black Sea Crimea region.

The trucks are worth more than $2.7 million in total.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
