Samsung has suspended all product shipments to Russia, the firm declared on Friday. “Shipments to Russia have been halted due to current geopolitical circumstances,” says a statement emailed to Samsung’s generic PR email account by an unknown Samsung official. “We’re still keeping a close eye on this complicated scenario to see what our next measures should be.”
Samsung’s suspension extends to “chips to cellphones and consumer electronics,” according to a person who spoke to Bloomberg, thus cutting Russia off from a wide variety of items from one of the world’s top electronics companies.
Samsung contributes to humanitarian activities as well. “Our thoughts are with everyone who has been touched,” the business states, adding that “our top goal is to safeguard the safety of all our employees and their families.” “We want to actively assist humanitarian operations in the region, particularly refugee help,” says the statement. To that end, we’re contributing $6 million, which includes $1 million in consumer electronics goods as well as staff gifts.”
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Samsung is the latest tech company to halt new product sales in the country. According to the latest information, Samsung would have been allowed to transport technology to Russia despite some export restrictions, but the corporation may have decided to suspend shipments on its own. in spite of this reason, Twitter rolls out a beta test of the anti-abuse feature ‘Safety Mode,’ with instructions on how to use it.
