KAPITANIVKA, Ukraine – Petro Rondiak’s first car as a teenager in Massachusetts in the early 1980s was a rusty, smoke-belching, 10-year-old Peugeot hand-me-down from his Ukrainian immigrant parents.
“We can deliver 20,000 cars a year,” Rondiak told the Kyiv Post during a March 7 interview at Winner’s massive headquarters, 25 kilometers west of Kyiv. “We could do even more. We bought an additional 11 hectares nearby and we’re ready to expand.”
