Rusia aún importa autos británicos de lujo

By Ninian Carter

March 14, 2024 - Según una investigación de Sky News, Rusia está evadiendo sanciones, causadas por su invasión de Ucrania, importando vehículos de lujo del RU por medio de países que fueron estados soviéticos, en especial Azerbaiyán.

Luxury cars made in the UK are finding their way to Russia, despite the imposition of sanctions, according to a Sky News investigation.

Direct exports from the UK to Russia ceased after the invasion of Ukraine in 2022, however, data from His Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) shows that in 2023, the UK exported £273 million of vehicles to Azerbaijan – a huge increase on the years prior to the invasion.

The HMRC data also reveals that the average value of a British car exported to Azerbaijan is more than £100,000 – suggesting that the consignments are primarily luxury car models, such as those manufactured by Rolls Royce and Bentley.

UK carmakers say that they are no longer selling cars to Russia, but that it is impossible to track each British consignment once it has left port.
