Two companies tell of their arrival in Russia. On the one side PSA which implements a factory in the region of Kaluga, on the other a SSII with the name probably predestined, TAÏGA, which opens an office in Moscow. Two stories at once different and similar, two human adventures of pioneers who surely do not regret having gone there.
