Toyota loses 13,000 cars as a result of the cyberattack. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida says it is too early to know who is behind the attack. Japan is backing the US and other Western allies that are seeking to impose harsh sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

Toyota suspends 28 assembly lines at 14 factories. Japan supports blocking some Russian banks from accessing the SWIFT international payment system. The auto industry is in the midst of a number of crises that are affecting supply, including a global shortage of semiconductor chips. The company said it will continue to work with its suppliers in strengthening the supply chain.

The shift to electric vehicles has increased the demand for chips and other computer parts. The results have included record high prices for customers, as well as supply chain disruptions. Last month, Toyota, the largest automaker in the world, said it expects to miss its annual production target of 9 million vehicles.
