The decision of these two Japanese automotive companies is likely to add more force to the increasing boycott of Russia by the global automotive industry as a whole. While a number of strict and stringent economic sanctions announced by the US and the European Union (EU) may have a big impact on Russia, the world’s 11th largest economy, the snub from automotive companies too is likely to have a significant play.
