Microsoft Stops Business Activities In Russia

It was announced that Microsoft is suspending any activity (of the Microsoft companies) in Russia.

This suspension comes after the conflict began between Russia and Ukraine, and many companies since then have either postponed or pulled out of the Russian markets as an answer to the sanctions recently introduced.

Tweeted by Tom Warren, he says that Microsoft is suspending “all new sales of its products and services in Russia, so no new Xbox, Windows, Azure sales.” Microsoft will also pull out many aspects of their businesses located in Russia.
