Xiaomi continues to be boycotted in Finland and will soon be banned: Three significant Finnish mobile carriers, Telia, DNA, and Elisa, have reportedly agreed to boycott Xiaomi and cease stocking its smartphones in their stores.
This is a result of worries over the company’s ties to Russia, which just invaded Ukraine. Nevertheless, a few carriers have said they would continue to promote Xiaomi.
Earlier this year, the National Agency of Corruption Prevention in Ukraine declared Xiaomi an “international sponsor of war” due to its active support for the Russian market. According to a report by Suomimobiili, Ukraine claimed that Xiaomi’s business dealings in Russia aided the Russian army.
“Dissatisfaction with Xiaomi’s operation is now stronger than before, especially in the thoughts of operators’ representatives”, read the report. Of the three carriers, Telia said that it will only sell the Xiaomi devices already in stock and will not order any new ones. DNA said it has removed Xiaomi phones from its display shelves and will not renew its inventory once the stock sells out. Elisa said that it will narrow down its range of Xiaomi products and will monitor the situation closely.
As per BNN Network, Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi, renowned globally for its high-quality and competitively priced devices, is experiencing unforeseen obstacles in the Finnish market due to political and populist factors. The brand’s active presence in Russia has led to the suspension of its products by three major Finnish operators, Telia, DNA, and Elisa. This decision is seen as a response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, despite the fact that various tech companies have withdrawn from Russia as a form of protest and boycott.
The first retailer to halt Xiaomi phone sales during the summer was Veikon Kone. Later, because the competition didn’t follow, it was forced to change its mind. However, Kone is not planning to sell any new models from the Chinese brand in Finland.
However, some Finnish retailers, such as Gigantti and Verkkokauppa, said they will continue to sell Xiaomi products until further notice, as the EU has not imposed any sanctions on the company.
Xiaomi is said to have assured Verkkokauppa.com that it complies with EU legislation, as a result of which the carrier continues to sell the brand’s phones in Finland.
