Mercedes just shut down its software services to all Russian dealers: German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has completely disconnected Russian dealers from its software, the Izvestia daily reported on Monday, citing the press service of the company’s distributor in Russia.
Access has been suspended to online systems used for maintenance and identification of problems, Mercedes-Benz Russia reportedly told the outlet. Izvestia sources said Germany’s BMW Group has also restricted Russian dealers’ access to its software.
Given the way things are clearly developing, it won’t be long before your ability to access automative services is as subject to deplatforming as your ability to upload YouTube videos or make posts on social media. We already have to build our own platforms in the unauthorized economy, and soon we will also need to service our own cars.
MERCEDES-BENZ DISCONNECTS FROM RUSSIA
As my readers know, part of the Great Reset is to eliminate private car ownership under the premise of climate change. But technology has become a new tool ut technology has become a new tool that manufacturers and the global elite can use to limit the freedom of movement. German automaker Mercedes-Benz recently declared that Russians will be removed from their software. Yet, Germany is technically not at war with Russia, and this is a penalty for civilians.
Dealerships are rushing to find loopholes, such as connecting vehicles to European IP addresses. Russian customers will have access to a limited online service that shows if part of the vehicle’s system is failing.
This opens a new door for tyranny and control as car manufacturers can now directly punish the people of any nation. Germany is allegedly not at war with Russia, but they have the ability to prevent Russians from properly maintaining their vehicles.
