As you may know, the war in Ukraine is already having repercussions in many countries. The conflict will increase the price of the automobile. Indeed, both Ukraine and Russia export large quantities of components to European manufacturers. However, deliveries have and will continue to decline as long as the situation persists. Fact, car prices are bound to rise.

Lately we have also learned that the war in Ukraine will worsen the shortage of computer chips. The country is home to one of the main producers of neon, a rare gas used in the manufacture of electronic components. However, this company, based in Odessa, has logically suspended its activities.

Still on this shortage of computer chips, it would obviously start to cause problems for Russia. According to Ukrainian state media and the country’s armed forces, the largest tank manufacturer in Russia was forced to discontinue production, for lack of components. The Kyiv Independent newspaper writes that the Uralvagonzavod company has halted operations at its factory in Chelyabinsk, located in central-western Russia, due to the lack of spare parts supplied by foreign countries.

Russia soon deprived of tanks?

This information was initially communicated by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, then confirmed by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense on March 21, if the newspaper is to be believed. However, this information should be taken with a grain of salt, as long as the veracity of this information is not endorsed by a non-Ukrainian source.

It should be remembered, however, that Uralvagonzavod’s assets have been frozen by the EU since March 15, 2022. Incidentally, the company is also blacklisted and it is now “prohibited from engaging, directly or indirectly, in any transaction” with her. The EU chose to sanction the company because “T-72B3 tanks delivered by Uralvagonzavod to the Russian armed forces were used by Russia during the illegal invasion of Ukraine in 2022″. In fact, the EU has concluded that the Russian manufacturer participates in the material or financial support of actions that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
