US tech company Microsoft suspends sales of goods and services in Russia. Microsoft announced this itself. The cause is the sanctions imposed by western countries after the invasion of Ukraine.
“Like the rest of the world, we are shocked, angry and saddened by the images and news of the war in Ukraine,” CEO Brad Smith wrote. “We condemn this unjust and unlawful invasion by Russia.”
In addition, Microsoft wants to help Ukraine by helping the country with cybersecurity: “We will continue to work proactively with experts to fend off cyber attacks from Russia,” it sounds.
Microsoft is following other well-known tech companies that have already imposed sanctions against Russia. For example, Apple and Intel, the main supplier of processors and servers for data centers, have already announced that they will no longer sell products. Google also stops selling ads in Russia.
