    Where was Ericsson during the war against Iraq?

    1 million murdered. Not a murmur from Ericsson.

      Everybody is evil so we should all just sit on our hands and be quiet when we witness evil?

        Guys, stop feeding the trolls.

        Voice Of Truth directly translates to голос правды, "golos pravdy".

        Golospravdy.eu (coincidence?) is another misinformation site telling how Ukraine is a neonazi state and the Russians are there to save the day with their Weapons of Peace. Handily for non-Russian speakers the pages offer machine translations, so don't just take my word for it.

        There was a popular Soviet saying "Pravda has no truth and Izvestia has no news". Izvestia was the the other Soviet government mouthpiece and you can guess what the word means...

          "Voice Of Truth" is a phrase associated with nutjobbery in many languages, and the only thing they've posted to any political topic here is "where was X when 1 million Iraqis died". If this one were posting from the toll factory they'd be fired for lack of imagination.

          Just another simpleton who has misapplied boolean logic to the real world and thinks that if US=bad, not(US)=good.

            And what does this mean?

            Or rather, what do you think it means?

            nowadays it doesn't mean anything

            Beyond the fact that the IP segment was initially affected to ARIN... which then attributed it to a company for use. Said company can be anywhere in the wold.

      And where was moralist Ericsson from 2014 - 2022 when Ukro-Nazis were murdering ethnic Russians (15,000 dead)?

        It's weird pretending the democratically elected government of Ukraine with a Jewish president whose family was decimated because of the Shoah to be nazi and at the same time classifying people based on their "ethnicity".

        Let's also mention that the Wagner group, heavily used by the Russian dictatorship all over the World and now committing atrocities in Ukraine was created by a Neo Nazi.

          Wagner is also on rampage in Mali, now that France has left, after being told to leave.

          And North Mali is becoming a new Caliphate for the IS.

      Where was Ericsson during the war against Syria?

      600, 000 deads - Among them at least 8,500 civilians killed by Russian forces.

      Targetting civilians deliberately is a speciality of the Russian Army. You're right, we should have embargoed Russia much harder sooner.

    So we're banning lots of things.

    This entire war and related issues are a mess on all sides ... but maybe banning so much with Russia will result in fewer spam calls to the average Russians' phone? Perhaps a better approach would be for the security forces in the West to deliver Putin's (icon) and every army commanders phone numbers to the spam networks?

    This is just a suggestion, not a joke.

    For or against?

    Are they protesting for more war or against what we already have?

    Remote support?

    They didn't say whether their remote product support contracts are also cancelled? Just in-country business.
