Interesting. I wonder if their Kuga is made in Spain (ie. the same as the UK/ Aus Kuga?)

Okay Russia has a factory in Elebuga apparently. However, this shows the Valencia made Kuga is also affected:

Quote Late in July 2017, Ford South Africa announced “Phase 2" of its local Kuga recall. A week later, a Kuga SUV caught fire along the N12 East in Jet Park, Boksburg. On Tuesday (August 22nd) Ford SA issued another safety recall, the third in 2017, to address a potential fire risk posed by insulation material fitted near the SUV's front seatbelts, that could catch fire in the event of a crash.

Ford recalled 4556 Kuga 1.6-litre Ecoboost models, produced from December 2012 to February 2014, in January 2017 following several reports of its utility vehicles bursting into flames.
Risk of insulation catching fire Ford SA said: "In the event of a frontal collision, these vehicles have been identified as having a possible risk for a B-Pillar fire. The activation of the seatbelt pre-tensioner can potentially cause the insulation material around the pre-tensioner to ignite.
The latest recall affects all Kugas‚ regardless of engine type‚ built at the automaker's Valencia factory in Spain from July 2012 - June 2014. Approximately 173 000 (7219 in South Africa) Ford Kuga vehicles, built in Valencia (Spain) and Elebuga (Russia) are affected.
