We recently wrote that Microsoft banned the download of Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems from the official website for users from Russia. Now the president of the company Brad Smith (Brad Smith) in an interview with the Washington Post spoke about the future activities of Microsoft in the Russian market.
Until complete care
According to Smith, Microsoft will continue to reduce business in Russia and as a result intends to completely leave the Russian market.
“As for Russia, we see how our business there is shrinking, shrinking, shrinking… And, apparently, it will continue to shrink until there is almost nothing and nothing left of it”
However, Russian employees (and this is about 400 people) are promised the help and support they "need and deserve."
Recall that Microsoft suspended sales and services in Russia in March amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
