U.S. sanctions preventing VW buying stake in Russian automaker GAZ - RIA

MOSCOW, March 6 (Reuters) - Volkswagen cannot buy a stake in Russian automaker GAZ because the company is under U.S. sanctions and talks on a deal have been suspended, the RIA news agency cited the head of the Russian office of Volkswagen as saying on Wednesday.

GAZ was placed under U.S. sanctions last year. In December, the U.S. Treasury extended a deadline for investors to divest from GAZ to March 7. (Reporting by Gleb Stolyarov and Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber; writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by Kirsten Donovan)
