    Y'all saying too much. Finland just prioritizes safety of their people. At least they're not being aggressive or stepping in with other nations.

      Did Finland bought gases from Russia too?

Apple also stopped selling products in Russia at that time. Russians are still able to buy iPhones in Russia through parallel imports. Parallel imports are goods that are imported into a country without the permission of the trademark owner. There are a number of companies that are importing iPhones into Russia through parallel imports. These companies typically buy iPhones from countries such as China and India, and then sell them in Russia.

              So just the fact that a company is still operating a business in Russia makes it an "international sponsor of war"? They should include Burger King, KFC and Cinnabon as international sponsors of war since they still operate in Russia.

                  Finland was on the communists chopping block but fought back and we retained our independence, something Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania et al. sadly couldn't manage.

                  Once again in 1941-1944 it was time for war with the communists in the Continuation War. All of my grandmothers brothers were in the war, many got injured, one died. Needless to say I haven't heard much love about Russia while growing up. The general consensus in Finland, even to this day because so many were affected from 2-3 generations ago, is that Russia can't be trusted, period.

                      Why only xiaomi? All other brands are being used as a communication device in the middle of the war. Most are using samsung or apple products. If Xiaomi's market is growing in Russia, it means that Russia is just supporting Xiaomi's products because they are much cheaper compared to the other 2, Samsung and Apple. They need expound they reason in a much logical sense.

                        I absolutely believe products are sabotaged to control,people should never be nieve about how real hate is. I would say it’s obvious with my phone all my content is about hate for me, I got doxxed from a country in active genocide, I cannot get rid of hateful content on my phone, they have used my picture and others to publish damaging content. I’m upset where is our protection and where is the rightful outrage as I’m not alone in this damage to my life to include them getting access to my bank accounts and encryption destruction of my funds Do we have a military that cares? Government cares? Police cares? This stuff is important to life at least someone cared about you

                              The only problem with Xiaomi is that they offer good performance for a decent price. If they sell their products in Russia it doesn't mean that they are "supporting the war". They are selling their products for money not shopping armament for free as the rest of the world does to Ukraine.
                              I'm having enough for paying the price of a war that's not really my concern.

                                      Of course, it's highly likely that those buyers purchase second hand Sony phones because of so-called Sony fanboys in GSMArena comment sections, and they have nobody to get support from, if they fall in trouble.
