Cummins is located in Trump VP Mike Pence’s hometown, and Cummins workers-Cummins PAC were the second largest campaign donors in Mike Pence’s Congressional career, according to the Center for Responsive Politics-OpenSecrets.org.
Additionally, his brother Ed Pence started working at Cummins in 1981 and for a long time was a top manager with sectors that literally move Russia: military, mining, oil and gas, farming. He announced his retirement in December of 2017, but still probably has stocks and his retirement funds are probably dependent upon Cummins.
Cummins is not only a long-time joint venture partner of Russian Government owned KAMAZ, it provides engines to GAZ , which is owned by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. 
The most recent Navalny corruption video is about an important Russian official (Prikhodko) hanging out on Deripaska’s yacht. Russia is demanding that Youtube remove the video. Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has represented Deripaska as a lobbyist in the past, and had business interests with him. Although Deripaska has sued Manafort in the past, and currently, lawsuits can act as a channel for money-laundering. The Special Prosecutor for Corruption and Organized Crime (Spain), Jose Grinda, alleged that Deripaska had ties to Russian organized crime, specifically the Izmailovskaya organization. 
Navalny speculates that Deripaska and Prikhodko discussed the US election on the yacht, and that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort used Deripaska to communicate with Putin via Prikhodko.

How did GAZ start? It wasn’t just the Koch family who made money under Stalin. GAZ was a Ford Plant: “In May 1929 the Soviet Union signed an agreement with the Ford Motor Company. Under its terms, the Soviets agreed to purchase $13 million worth of automobiles and parts, while Ford agreed to give technical assistance until 1938 to construct an integrated automobile-manufacturing plant at Nizhny Novgorod. Production started on 1 January 1932, and the factory and marque was titled Nizhegorodsky Avtomobilny Zavod, or NAZ, but also displayed the “Ford” sign. GAZ’s first vehicle was the medium-priced Ford Model A, sold as the NAZ-A, and a light truck, the Ford Model AA (NAZ-AA). NAZ-A production commenced in 1932 and lasted until 1936, during which time over 100,000 examples were built. In 1933, the factory’s name changed to Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod, or GAZ, when the city was renamed after Maxim Gorky; similarly, models were renamed GAZ-A and GAZ-AA.” But this is where it gets even more strange. Not only did Russia need help with how to make cars in 1929 but in 2006 when DaimlerChrysler modernized its Sterling Heights Assembly facility, they sold and shipped the old assembly line and tooling for the Chrysler Sebring-Dodge Stratus to GAZ in Russia. Currently the “GAZ car facility is used for contract manufacturing for Volkswagen and General Motors.” 
If Russians are so smart in mathematics and science, as we are always told, then why do they depend so much on US technology, even to the point of stealing it sometimes? https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2018/01/30/texas-man-sentenced-for-conspiring-to-illegally-export-radiation-hardened-integrated-circuits-to-russia-and-china-for-military-space-program-applications/
While Cummins does business with Russia, Pence tells the Baltic states: “no threat looms larger in the Baltic States than the specter of aggression from your unpredictable neighbor to the east./ At this very moment, Russia continues to seek to redraw international borders by force, undermine democracies of sovereign nations, and divide the free nations of Europe — one against another…. To be clear: We hope for better days, for better relations with Russia, but recent diplomatic action taken by Moscow will not deter the commitment of the United States of America to our security, the security of our allies, and the security of freedom-loving nations around the world. Under President Donald Trump, the United States stands firmly behind our Article 5 pledge of mutual defense, and an attack on one of us is an attack on us all…” Excerpt from “For Immediate Release , July 31, 2017, REMARKS BY VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE AT A JOINT PRESS AVAILABILITY WITH BALTIC LEADERS
