General Motors, Volvo and Volkswagen announced on Monday that they will suspend delivery of cars to Russia. Elon Musk delivered to Ukraine’s terminals enabling Internet connection via Starlink satellites. The agencies say Disney has stopped distributing the films in Russia.

Due to the invasion of Ukraine, the Mercedes-Benz Group is also considering legal possibilities to dispose of 15 percent. The German daily “Handelsblatt” reported that shares in the Russian company producing trucks and armored vehicles KAMAZ.

Earlier on Monday, Daimler Trucks, the world’s largest truck maker, suspended all business in Russia. The company also broke off cooperation with KAMAZ.

Netflix said that due to aggression against Ukraine, it will not add Russian state-owned TV channels to its platform, despite a provision by Roskomnadzor, the Russian media regulator, to include such an offer from March 1.

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov, who announced on the second day of the invasion that attacks on the country’s digital infrastructure were underway, asked Musk to provide Internet stations.

The Starlink network can guarantee Internet connectivity to areas of Ukraine under attack by the Russian military, according to AFP.

Petrochemical companies “Shell” and “BP” had previously withdrawn from cooperation with Gazprom.
