Elon Musk is one of the most prominent people in the middle of the whole Ukrainian problem. The strongman of Starlink and Tesla was able to help the country of Volodymyr Zelensky, either through access to the Internet or in other ways.
This time, the focus doesn’t seem to be on Elon Musk, but on his electric cars. Several Twitter users are asking for a new post, with the blocking or stopping of Tesla cars in Russia, as a measure of pressure on Vladimir Putin.
Many companies have severed their ties with Russia in protest and pressure. By withdrawing their services and products from this territory, they hope to reverse the situation in Ukraine and abandon the intentions of occupying the country.
Now, and just as a possible idea to put in place, several users have offered Elon Musk a new measure. They demand that this shutdown of Tesla cars be turned off remotely and that users lose access and the ability to use them.
@Elon Musk could you turn off every tesla in Russia?

The approach to this problem seems to be different among these Twitter users. If on the one hand there are those who simply ask Tesla to turn off cars remotely, there are those who argue that a technology embargo should be created in Russia.
Elon Musk and Tesla ended up not responding to these requests, which did not clarify the position of the company and its leader. This would probably be a possible measure, but one that Tesla will not take anytime soon.
Can you turn off @You're here in Russia as a kind of technological embargo?

Elon Musk himself seems to be against such measures and revealed thatlast weekend. From what he revealed in a message shared on Twitter, he refuses to apply any type of blocking or censorship on the Internet access provided by Starlink.
Even if it were possible, it would certainly be a move that would cause serious problems for Tesla. It's one thing to stop providing your services, it's another to take deliberate action that could directly interfere with private property, even in a conflict zone.
