Dell officially shuts down all its operations in Russia. After the first Russian attack on Ukraine in February 2022, the hardware giant has been gradually reducing its operations in Russia.
Earlier in August, Dell closed all its Russian offices and stopped sales and support since February. The Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Vasily Shpak in a TASS news report mentioned,
“According to our data, the vast majority of Dell’s R&D center specialists and support engineers in St Petersburg and Moscow have already received job offers with competitive pay from Russian producers.”
Russia has been making it increasingly difficult for foreign companies to carry out business with ease in the country.
Earlier in July, Roskomnadzor, Russia’s communications regulator issued Google with a $370m fine. Google was accused of spreading fake news regarding its military campaign in Ukraine.
Other companies like Twitch, Pinterest, Airbnb, and UPS were also fined heavily for failing to store users’ data locally in Russia.
It is not only the tech companies that are facing issues, companies such as Mcdonald’s and Starbucks are also being replaced by Russian-branded alternatives.
Apparently on the other hand the VPN industry is booming in Russia. VPN sales figures in the region suggest sales have skyrocketed in the country during the early stage of the Ukraine war. Ever since Russia blocked thousands of websites this figure further surged by nearly 1,906% in the course of a few days.
