Volvo said it has stopped delivering cars to Russia until further notice, while Daimler Truck is freezing all business activities in the country, including work it does in collaboration with Russia's Kamaz.

Daimler Truck owner Mercedes-Benz Group said it is looking at legal avenues to divest the 15% stake it holds in Kamaz, Reuters reported.

Truckmaker AB Volvo, which is separate from Volvo Cars, has also suspended sales and production in Russia, where it does 3% of its business.


Renault last week said it was idling some operations at its factories in Russia due to logistical issues caused by the conflict, but did not say it was looking to end business in the country as a result of the military action.
