According to Andrei, it will take up to several months to establish new supply channels, while the new pool of vendors will be determined based on their import substitution capabilities and the ability of Russian suppliers to solve issues with foreign components. At the same time, because of the slowdown in the commissioning of new facilities, the demand for colocation services will continue to exceed the supply.
