Adobe stops sales of all products, services in Russia
Adobe joins other major US tech firms in its sanctions on Russia by halting the sale of its products in the federation.
US software company Adobe said Saturday it had decided to freeze the sale of all its goods and services in Russia due to the situation in Ukraine.
"Effective immediately, Adobe will halt all new sales of Adobe products and services in Russia," the company said in a statement.
Adobe is complying with the sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union, the statement added.
The statement also said the software firm was terminating access to Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Document Cloud, and Adobe Experience Cloud to the Russian media outlets.
This is not the first US company that suspended sales to Russia over its operation in Ukraine, for Microsoft announced Friday that it had halted new sales of its products and services in Russia, following in the footsteps of numerous other companies and Western governments.
"Like the rest of the world, we are horrified, angered, and saddened by the images and news coming from the war in Ukraine and condemn this unjustified, unprovoked and unlawful invasion by Russia," Microsoft president Brad Smith said in a blog post.
Google paused its ads in Russia, Google Europe has blocked Youtube channels connected to RT and Sputnik across Europe, and Airbnb announced they were pausing their business in Russia and Belarus.
