MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's standards agency said on Monday that Volkswagen's Russian operation had informed it about the voluntary recall of 43,151 Skoda cars due to a possible technical fault.

The recall affects Skoda Octavia, Superb, Fabia, Yeti and Rapid cars sold in Russia between 2012 and 2016, the watchdog said.
