Eventually the people of Russia are going to revolt. The current government can't continue throwing people in prison while at the same time forcing mandatory military service, both of which are near certain death sentences.

While it would be a really bad idea for any other country to be overtly involved in Putin's ouster, (there's no doubt many are subvertly encouraging this), it is important that the rest of the world stand string and united in their defiance, in action and rhetoric, against Putin's criminal agression.

Japanese companies joining in that global effort should be applauded.

If any are left. All the men of fighting age are scrambling over each other to get out of the country.

Mazda simply closing as same as Toyota as sales went very bad and there is serious problem about logistics and delivery/supply of needed parts from abroad.

this does not means that Toyota or Mazda cars are unpopular in Russia,sales and exports of used cars/1yo-5yo/are hitting all time high records for last 5 years now-just to make picture complete.

These sanctions are starting to bite, and so they should.

I'm wondering what's to talk about? If Mazda leadership had even an ounce of morals they would have shut that plant the day Russian troops rolled into Ukraine and told their Russian "partner" firm to take a hike. And what about Mazda's shareholders? No spine there either. But these same business people will strut around bragging about being the "best and brightest" among us. Yet there will be some who can't understand why so many people think capitalism itself is immoral. I'm an economist who both understands the benefits of capitalism and why socialism and communism fail, but I also see greed and a lack of basic human values destroying capitalism and turning the public away from it.
