It's little bit complicated. Text is from online translator (with little corrections):

"In 1984 he replaced the classic rear VAZes with family car with front-midget wedge with three door hatchback body - Lada Samara. First, the domestic market line Lada Samara was called the "Sputnik" and the name of Samara was used for export models. It turned out that the word "Sputnik" incomprehensible and in 1985 plant management decided to rename the model to Samara."

Then - Sputnik existed only one year, from 1984 to 1985.

Also - 2109 (not 2108) seems to be called VAZ 2109 Sputnik inside USSR/Russia, and Lada Samara outside. With strange variations, like Lada Sputnik for domestic market ( http://www.gde-vaz.ru/files/car_models/12041462522378.jpg ) or Lada Samara - also for domestic market ( http://auto.vvoronezhe.ru/car_photo1407_big.jpg )... What a mess...

Here they list them this way:

Based on the mentioned site, I proposed to list them this way: Link to "forum.imcdb.org"
But can be, that Sputnik was replaced earlier. On the other hand I don't know why the word "Sputnik" would be "incomprehensible" in Russia...
