from google translate seems Komatsu had exclusive import privileges for this things

Quote For government contracts in the Soviet Union supplied annually thousands of bulldozers, especially in the northern regions of the country. In the acute need for reliable bulldozers for development of the northern areas, the Soviet leadership almost no choice but to buy equipment in Japan, the company Komatsu, because the market the largest manufacturers of bulldozers were (and still are to this day) of Komatsu and Caterpillar. Purchasing vehicles in the United States during the Cold War was not possible, and the Soviet tractor industry, the machine could not produce this level of quality, reliability and performance. Komatsu company used this chance and started to develop and test equipment capable of operating at ultralow temperatures that required during the development of the Far North. Thus, Komatsu received almost monopoly in the supply of equipment to the USSR. At the same time, it should be noted that despite the monopoly, Komatsu never stayed there, and constantly worked to improve his technique.
In 1968, Komatsu was signed an agreement to supply equipment to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR. USSR needed a lot of emergency vehicles, which would be able to work in places impassable at low temperatures. First Komatsu machines appeared in the Far East in 1969. By 1970, the territory of the Soviet Union worked about 2300 timber trucks, bulldozers started to supply the mining enterprises, of which the most popular are «D355»
