Yes, of course. Perhaps the company did not do their homework in the first place, as political unstability usually is not something that appears sudden and out of the blue. In some countries, yes, but that risk should have been evalauted before going in to that country. Cost-efficiency and production costs took priority over potential disruption costs, and look what happended...
Of course the company should do a what-if analysis to select the best (not necessarily the least-cost) solution to solve this issue. Simply scrambling resources and rechanneling the manufacturing without evaluating the consequences is not an option.
Here are a couple of examples of how other companies have reacted: Robust strategies for mitigating supply chain disruptions
failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) seems to be the good procedure to handle this type of systemic problem and anticipate a possible need of re-calibration of sourcing. It will permit to this company to make the good what-if scenarios based on probability of issues' occurance and criticality.
