WSJ: some Chinese IT companies stop deliveries of products to Russia


United States blackmail against major IT companies from China has reached a new level and seems to have begun to work, although not immediately. At the end of March, the US Department of Commerce issued a decree according to which Washington officially notified Chinese manufacturers of electronics and communications that it would stop selling American software to these firms if their products (and semiconductors) were supplied to the Russian market.


The indecision lasted for about a month. On May 7, the American edition of The Wall Street Journal published an article in which it claims that Chinese companies have nevertheless decided on the future and, without official statements, stop supplying goods to Russia due to sanctions and, of course, pressure from the American authorities, as well as the lobby of Western competitors. WSJ at the same time refers to its own sources.

Back in March, Russia's Ministry of Industry and Trade tried to anticipate this situation and allowed "parallel imports" of cell phones and other communication electronics. However, the United States reacted to this step of the Russian Federation with a direct warning sent to Chinese manufacturers. It was this appeal that played a role in the current situation.

First of all, the American edition names companies such as Lenovo and Xiaomi. As the WSJ writes, in the last few weeks, there have been no deliveries of phones of these brands to Russia, the editors note.

A similar fate awaits the Chinese company Huawei, which may face new sanctions from Washington if it continues to support Russia in the telecom sector. Most likely, this communications giant will not want to tempt fate and repeat the history of 2020, when the activity was almost paralyzed by Western sanctions against the company.

The interest of the States in putting pressure on Chinese companies is obvious. And it’s not even about smartphones, but rather about other telecommunications equipment, such as walkie-talkies or frequency scanners. They are quite often used by the armed forces of the Russian Federation during the NWO. It is precisely this supply channel that Washington intends to block, although these are absolutely civilian products, adapted by the military to suit their needs. But in the United States, they did not begin to separate individual product lines and put pressure on Chinese manufacturers as a whole.

Unfortunately, companies from the Celestial Empire listened to the threats and began to tacitly reduce supplies. If the downward trend continues, a complete cessation of the supply of products may take place in the near future. However, a number of experts consider all these statements a bluff. China has begun conducting stress tests for its economics under sanctions. Against this background, Russia adopted a law on parallel imports, which in many ways suits not only our country, but also foreign companies that do not want to lose billions in profits on the Russian market.

    They refused to help with spare parts, IT companies stop deliveries, the Academy of Sciences has suspended cooperation, financial organizations are wary of falling under the rink of Western sanctions - this was to be expected.
    The situation may change as a result of the special military operation of the Russian Federation and the ill-considered actions of the United States against China.

    Unfortunately, we have more chatter, populism, reasoning, slogans - but in reality, production has not been established, substitution has not been made, there is not even abolition of patent law so that our own people can start production.
    The West and the United States have directed every effort to inflict maximum damage on us and lead to the destruction of the country.
    In response, Russia strives to fulfill contracts, pay bills, and not harm other people's wallets, because agents of influence feed on them. Everything is somehow with apologies, with a deflection, as if we are in vassal dependence, and not a sovereign state.

      in fact, production is not established

      Dude, why haven't you fixed it yet? Sitting on the couch, you criticize those who have been restoring the country for twenty years after the Yeltsin pogrom. He probably voted for Yeltsin. Chasing others is the easiest way.

        Yeltsin did not carry out the NWO with negative consequences.
        Everyone must be responsible for himself.
        To insult the opponent and blame the predecessor - rotten "arguments"! ;-(

    The Chinese are well aware that Russia is protecting them, and if Russia loses the war, China will turn into a colony worse than that. which was until the 40s. China has no choice but to support Russia. And they behave cautiously - this can be understood.

    For trade with China, Russia has many informal channels executed in yuan across a vast common border.

    WSJ: some Chinese IT companies stop deliveries of products to Russia

    - No, well, everything is so funny that you can die with laughter !!!
    - How to drive Russian forest across the border to China - so "who will keep track of everything" !!! - And how to overtake several "left trucks" to Russia from China - so they all become so "law-abiding" at once !!!
    - Damn, even in one truck - how much of this product will fit ??? - This is for our stunted "Economics" - it will be enough to provide the whole plant (if there is one at all in Russia) - with a full load-work in three shifts for a whole month !!! - And a dozen of these trucks - this is generally - work the plant for a whole year - without any days off and holidays !!!
    - Damn - why was this new "Russian-Chinese bridge" recently put into operation - just to exchange tourists, or what ??? - Yes, through this bridge on one bicycle you can transport so many Chinese products that it will not seem enough !!!
    - Damn - it's not to carry through the seas and oceans on chartered ships !!!
    - Damn, they will always create a problem for us out of any trifle - the country is a complete Mazo and hysteria - there is simply no way without it !!! - “Oh, deprived; oh, they didn’t give it” - don’t feed it with bread - just let me cry and act like a fool and beat ourselves up and hurt more !!!

    Some ...

    Not at all. Some, but only with warehouses in Russia, remain. Work out? ... I do not know!.

    In the majority, the Chinese, after February 24, were the first to take off. All. Before Ike or Boeing and other McDucks. Ali express with Ma at the head, for example, takes money, but does not fulfill orders. No one. How cut off (personal experience). Then he returns the depreciated rubles. And that is not always the case. But Ma is American. His Chinese face is a mask... Just like "Ali".

    Finances, old-timers ... made in rank, left instantly. Now it is impossible to hide it. It is better to smoothly prepare people for insight.

    But at the household level, among the Chinese people, support for Russia is going through the roof.

    What about Titov? And the Titov, like the government, are in shock. And, for now, in a stupor. The dream of the "beauty" dragged on!

    China long ago learned how to bypass all these sanctions.
    There was a Huawei device, it will become Weyahu, instead of Lenovo there will be Leonovo, business something ...
    It is extremely difficult for a politician to influence a businessman, especially when he nestled across the ocean and a priori signed up as an enemy.
