Apple Suspends Sales in Russia amid Ukraine Invasion

The Index Today

Apple Inc. has joined the list of prominent American companies to suspend their sales in Russia on Tuesday on account of the Kremlin’s full scale invasion of Ukraine. Other major firms to halt business in the country include Google, Harley-Davidson, and Ford.

Apple announced that they had stopped the sales of iPhones and other products and services in Russia. Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson ceased shipments and operations as did Ford, while Google removed state-operated news media portals from its news.

This comes in the midst of increasing sanctions against Russia by the West, including banning it from the SWIFT international payments system, thereby pressuring major companies to eschew the country.

In a statement, Apple said, "We are deeply concerned about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and stand with all of the people who are suffering as a result of the violence." Ford also released a similar statement saying, "Ford is deeply concerned about the invasion of Ukraine and the resultant threats to peace and stability. The situation has compelled us to reassess our operations in Russia."
