Russia needs to get ready
Since the commencement of the crisis between Ukraine and Russia, most countries in Europe, the US, and the UK have been on Ukraine’s side. These countries and regions have visited Russia with a plethora of bans. These restrictions are crippling the free flow of things in Russia and many companies are exiting the Russian market. To this end, Russian companies are gearing up to take advantage of the available vacuum in the market. The BITBLAZE Titan BM15 is one of such products to give Russians an option.
Well, many of these Russian companies can not freely do business outside Russia. Thus, it is only pertinent that these companies focus on Russia. Between now and the end of the year, many products will still be available in the Russian market. However, as its inventory diminishes without replacements, Russian products like the BITBLAZE Titan BM15 will find their place in the market. This is probably why the company wants its mass production to be at the end of the year.
