Apple to halt sales and limit services in Russia

Apple Inc said on Tuesday it has paused all product sales in Russia in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“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,” Apple said in a statement. “We are supporting humanitarian efforts, providing aid for the unfolding refugee crisis, and doing all we can to support our teams in the region.”

Notably, the move comes after social media giants- Facebook, Twitter, Google- last week banned monetisation of Russian content on their platforms. Online video platform YouTube, also banned streaming of Russian publishers RT News in response to Russia’s “unprovoked” invasion of Ukraine.

The war between Russia and Ukraine has entered into its seventh day on Wednesday with Russian troops launching vacuum bombs as they tried to inch closer to Kyiv. The conflict between the countries waded into a large-scale military attack after Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24 ordered an invasion of Kyiv. Ever since, over 400 casualties, including women and children, have been reported in the war, according to the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).
