Tech giant Apple announced on Tuesday (1) that it temporarily suspended sales of its products in Russia due to the invasion of Ukraine. The company added in a statement that it also limited access to the Apple Pay payment system and stopped offering certain Ukraine map information in its Apple Maps app to protect the safety of Ukrainian citizens. In addition, the Apple App Store will no longer allow applications from the Russian network RT and the agency “Sputnik” to be downloaded outside Russia.

Likewise, Apple explained that last week it stopped exporting products intended for sale on the Russian market, such as iPhone or iPad. “We are very concerned about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and we stand with those people who are suffering from the violence,” the company said in a statement. The company announced that it would continue to assess the situation and said it was in contact with several governments. “We join all those around the world who are calling for peace,” Apple added.
