Vladimir and Vladimir vs analysis from Robert, Aftonbladet.se

“I wonder if it’s a coincidence that Putin is here at the same time as Antonov is in final negotiations regarding Saab.
I can hardly believe that.
No, I’m guessing that Putin is equally interested in Saab as Antonov. Just as the Chinese state is behind the nouveau riche Li Shofu and the Volvo deal, I believe that the Russian government wants the Saab deal to go through.
Antonov repeatedly mentions that he wants to open a Saab factory in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad by the Baltic Sea, and Russia needs both jobs and cars.
I think Vladimir will fix the deal. At the last minute. I´m keeping my fingers crossed.”
Do I agree? I don´t know, not all of it, but it is a valid thought and well, Robert is right when it comes to the need for jobs.
Robert… Fancy a spot of lunch? 🙂
