Tech Workers Persuade Companies To Cut Ties With Russia

Share post:

Small groups of employees at Microsoft, SAP, and IBM have urged management to cease operations in Russia. This is in sharp criticism of Russia’s military activities in Ukraine.

Employees want companies to go beyond ending new sales and dropping sanctioned clients. This they believe will increase pressure on Russia.

They also demand that companies suspend all business with Russia, including software customers who use their technology to track sales, supply chains, and workforce.

While IBM said it would no longer cooperate with Russian companies around the world, SAP said it was complying with government sanctions.

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov also urged organizations around the world to cut ties with Russia.

Fedorov pointed out that Russia was already feeling the effects of the sanctions imposed by the technology companies, but called for a complete withdrawal of these organizations from Russia.
