Apple suspends the sale of its products in Russia

The technology giant Apple announced that it has temporarily suspended the sale of its products in Russia due to the invasion of Ukraine. The company added in a statement that it has also limited access to the Apple Pay payment system and has stopped offering certain information on maps of Ukraine from its Apple Maps application in order 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 Sputnik agency to be downloaded outside of Russia.

Likewise, Apple explained that last week it stopped exporting products destined to be sold in 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 due to the violence,” the company said in its note.
The company announced that it will continue to evaluate the situation and said that it is in contact with several governments.
"We join all those around the world who are calling for peace," Apple added.
The decision comes as technology companies have come under increasing public pressure to act against Russia.

Last week, Ukrainian government officials asked Apple CEO Tim Cook to halt sales in the region. "We support humanitarian efforts, providing aid in the unfolding refugee crisis and doing everything we can to support our teams in the region," the company said on Tuesday.
