Chipmaker Qualcomm reported on Wednesday it has stopped providing its products to Russian firms in compliance with the US-imposed sanctions following Moscow invaded Ukraine.
The company’s motion was disclosed by its senior vice president of governing administration affairs, Nate Tibbits, in a tweet as a reply to a comment by Ukrainian Vice Key Minister Mykhailo Fedorov.
Urging Tibbits to stop provides to Russia, Fedorov mentioned Qualcomm items are even now available in Russia and it “inadvertently enables this country to destroy 1000’s of Ukrainians.”
In his reply, Tibbits said, “This is incorrect. Qualcomm has identified as for a peaceful resolution to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, designed direct donations to aid corporations & match worker contributions.”
“We comply with US sanctions & legislation are not providing products to Russian providers,” he reported.
Thanking the shift, Fedorov subsequently prompt that the chipmaker can deliver its satellite phones for Ukrainian rescuers if it would like to assistance.
When the invasion has drawn the ire of Western nations and resulted in several US organizations halting operations in Russia, the region has known as its actions in Ukraine a “special operation”.
Earnings from Russia and Ukraine accounts for less than 1 per cent of its whole revenue, Qualcomm had said at its stockholder meeting before this month.
