Microsoft stops selling all products and services in Russia



Microsoft will stop selling both services and products - including Xbox Series consoles - in Russia. Microsoft CEO Brad Smith confirms this in a new statement (via VGC).

Smith condemns Russia's invasion and expresses terror, anger and sadness.


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.

As of today, sales for the tech giant in Russia will cease. It remains to be seen how long. At the same time as the decision has been made, actions is also being taken to follow the sanctions at, among others, the EU.

Microsoft and Smith do not rule out that more information is to be expected in the future. He thinks they...


...are most effective in aiding Ukraine when we take concrete steps in coordination with the decisions being made by these governments and we will take additional steps as this situation continues to evolve.

The invasion of Ukraine characterizes the gaming world in different ways, in the small and the big.
