Chinese equipment can also be blocked. Opinion

Russia needs its own high-tech production, because foreign manufacturers, including Chinese ones, can shut down their equipment remotely at any time, according to a summary from the theater of war published in The Essence of Time newspaper, no. 535.

Sergey Zhukov, General Director of Mosmetrostroy, said that in 2022 German-Swiss equipment manufacturer Liebherr tried to remotely block the work of truck cranes used by the Russian company.

According to Zhukov, the company’s IT specialists could cope with this problem, and today all the equipment is working. He also noted that such difficulties with the equipment have practically come to naught, since there are many Asian counterparts on the market.

“This once again reminds of the earlier widespread opinion that Russia allegedly does not need its own high-tech production, claiming that ‘we will buy everything from the West.’ We bought it, used it, and… oops! But the Chinese equipment also works according to the same scheme and can be shut down at any time,” The Essence of Time editorial reads.
