Mercedes-Benz hopes to resume production at GAZ plant in Russia

MOSCOW, April 17 (Reuters) - German automaker Daimler said it hopes Mercedes-Benz will restart production of its Sprinter Classic vehicles in the near future at the site of sanctioned van maker GAZ, which is controlled by Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska.

Daimler and some others have stopped dealing with the sanctions-hit van maker. Deripaska said earlier on Wednesday he was ready to give up control of GAZ. (Reporting by Gleb Stolyarov Writing by Polina Nikolskaya Editing by Louise Heavens)
