Who will run it in WTCC? MTEC or Lada Sport Racing, and who actually build/developped the car and if it was ever even tested?

Neither of them - private team is going to run. They have picked-up the chassis from factory and in process of building for now.

So is the car again being built up to S2000 specs or some lower series?

It's going to be S2000 car. As far as I know the team will get factory's support at least in terms of homologation.

They'll get VAZ's support if the project has succes. In Russia nobody will spend a ruble not sure it would give him three rubles instead. They've plenty of projects-rally,touring,Dakar and have you seen them at any racing event?

AxelF, Bramzel, gwyllion, JMeissner, JorritVD, medius, Mike_Wooshy, Monkey Head, Nsnuccio, racefanhuib, Stefvh, Subaru_WRX_STi, THIM, Valker - remove your headwear and get some cutlery out - they're on the entry list starting in Valencia, so it looks like you might be eating your hats!

I'm also positively surprised with the 2nd driver of Russian Bears. Van Lagen is a very good driver. I had no idea that he was up to do the WTCC. Last year and the year before he drove FR3.5, but he broke with the team during the year. He had some decent results in the meantime though.

Russian have a talent to do impossible things
I've heard, they cancelled Sanct-Peterburg Red Bull Air Race two days before start, Red Bull Freestyle Festival two weeks before start
So, I'll believe in Lada-WTCC only when I see it my own eyes
