Buses produced by the “DNR” are in reality just SKD products that cannot be considered their "own". This was recognized by the fake "Ministry of Industry and Trade".
"Republican machine-building enterprises began the process of reorientation of production capacities to meet the needs of the republic... A large-scale assembly of buses has become one of the new directions of work. Today, the assembly of the first buses finishes at the state enterprise Donetskgormash", - the report said. Thus, the “DNR” will not produce any important elements of the future "republican" buses, all the parts will be smuggled (the “LDNR” does not carry out any legitimate trade operations with any of the countries in the world - OstroV) to the occupied territory of Donbass and will be assembled into a vehicle.
Reference. Semi knocked down (SKD) - the technology of import and further assembly of cars, focused on circumvention of high import duties or excise duties. Completely finished cars are dismantled for a small number of large units and imported to the territory of the state where they are assembled. This "trick" is used both for new cars (to a lesser extent), and for used ones. In modern automotive industry, the term is mainly used to refer to a production based on a large-body assembly of cars (for example, from supplied finished bodies and engines with a transmission). SKD is often called a "designer". In Russia there is also a close term "screw-type assembly".
