Russia evaluated the consequences of stopping microchip production in Taiwan 11:36

Stopping microchip production in Taiwan will not lead to serious consequences for the world if China invades the island. This is about Pravda.Ru said information security expert Alexander Vlasov comments on the possible decision of the Dutch company ASML.

According to him, in the event of such a scenario, the production of “supercomputers” will have to be postponed, but “there will be no apocalypse” and mass production of consumer electronics, gadgets and computers will not stop. The expert also allowed the emergence of famine and an increase in the prices of goods “for a while”.

“If we take an ordinary person, we are not undertaking any production tasks, let’s take an ordinary person, let’s get rid of the habit of changing his phone every three years. Many people have already gotten rid of the habit of changing their car every three years. We will replace microwaves and refrigerators less often. After all, we lived in a time when a refrigerator could last a lifetime – we bought it and we use it. And nothing like this happened to him,” Vlasov added.
