compression. In autoservice their ask from me around $600-$700 for

Thank you in advance

P.S. Sorry for bad English.
That is a difficult question to answer.
It would help if you could tell us Which parts they want to replace.
No compression in 5 cylinders sounds pretty bad.
You can buy most auto parts for this car and engine over the internet
(www.gmpartsdirect.com, www.carparts.com...and many others depending on
what parts you want)

I am some what suspicious. A number of vehicles were sent overseas in
containers. The source of the vehicles were off the street in many cities
in the U.S. and Canada and SUVs were targets. This info is from the news

over stepped the bounds I will respect that.
He may have meant the number five cylinder.
Anyway, its helpful to know what they want $600 to do (and is that
even in US dollars). Even if that is just the part price, it might not
be economical to buy parts over the net and ship them to Russia. With
the bad currency exchange rate (dollar to rouble) and the high
shipping charges, it doesn't seem practical.
I would mention to the original poster that he consider auto salvage
yards. Though it is an uncommon vehicle in Russia, if there is this
one, there is bound to be another. If you can find one in a salvage
yard, then that means you are getting an original type part, and not a
European copy that may be out of specifications.
And if it is stolen, I know some guys with a floating tow truck that
can go and get it back. Anyone want to joing a posse? (just kidding,
