Intel becomes latest Western tech firm to suspend business in Russia

US chipmaker Intel said on Tuesday, that it has suspended business operations in Russia, joining a slew of companies to exit the country following its invasion of Ukraine.


The company, which had last month suspended shipments to customers in Russia and Belarus, said it has implemented business continuity measures to minimize disruption to its global operations.


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


International Business Machines (IBM) also had suspended shipments as Ukraine urged US cloud-computing and software companies to cut off business with Russia.
