Intel becomes the latest tech firm to abandon Russia

Published

on

Several tech companies have exited Russia or reduced their activities in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

U.S. chipmaker Intel has suspended its operations in Russia after listening to pleas from users.

“Intel continues to join the global community in condemning Russia’s war against Ukraine and calling for a swift return to peace,” Intel says, in a statement.

The company will still support its 1200 employees as they work through business disruption.

This comes a month after Intel announced it will stop shipments to customers in Russia and Belarus.

The exodus has been in response to Ukraine’s request to cloud computing and software companies to completely stop any dealings with Russia so the country’s economy is disrupted.

Several western sanctions have also been imposed causing companies to suspend business in Russia. Apple, Dell, and Microsoft are just a few names among the slew of companies that are no longer selling their products to Russia or doing any business with Russian clients.

The tech exodus has forced Russia to source its technology software needs domestically. This is new for the country as it has previously depended on western tech companies for their owned and operated IT systems, with servers from IBM, Dell, and Hewlett topping the Russian market.
