MacBook Pro 13 turns off while loading after tea spill

Hey there! I accidentally spilled some tea to my Macbook Pro 13 (2017, Touchbar). There was a liquid near the On/Off button, the Touchbar and the upper right corner of the keyboard.

I immediately wiped the water off from the keyboard, and, as long as it was still working, I continued using it (I realised later that it was a big mistake). After 5 minutes of usage it turned off and now it turns off every time when I switch it on - it shows the Apple logo and turns off.

Can anybody suggest, what can be the problem?

P.S. I took it to the repair center in my country (Uzbekistan) the next day, but it has been a week since then and they still can't recognize the problem. They immediately disconnected the battery though…

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You’ve likely damaged/shorted the logic board, which will require professional microsoldering repair.

Repair specialists told me that water indicators on the logic board are white colored, which means that no water spilled to the board itself (otherwise they would turn red)

The logic board is extremely well protected from liquid entering via the keyboard. Certainly the uppercase has shorted out, but a replacement of it has a very high probability of fixing the problem.

UPDATE

Here’s how to replace the keyboard, in two parts:
