Samsung Becomes The Latest Company To Ditch Russia

Bloomberg is reporting that Samsung has stopped shipments of everything from consumer electronics like smartphones and TVs to chips to Russia in light of the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine:

“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted and our priority is to ensure the safety of all our employees and their families,” Samsung said in the statement. The company is donating $6 million, including $1 million in consumer electronics products, to humanitarian efforts in the region.

I am guessing that this was in response to this Tweet from Mykhailo Fedorov, who serves as Ukraine’s vice prime minister and oversees digital operations:

This is gaining so much steam that soon you won’t be able to buy anything in Russia. Which is fine by me given their inexcusable behaviour.
