Telecom Daily CEO Denis Kuskov also pointed to the problem. According to him, it is very difficult to service the iPhone now, since the components for them have really run out and users have to wait a very long time to replace the part.

Efim Kazantsev, a member of the commission on legal support of the digital economy of the Moscow branch of the Russian Bar Association, confirmed that foreign manufacturers can indeed refuse to accept claims for goods imported into the country without their permission, but this does not relieve Russian retailers of obligations to consumers. Therefore, the consumer can demand a replacement of the goods or a refund of the amount paid. Representatives of retailers assured the publication that they fulfill all warranty obligations in full.
