The news: As Russia’s attacks on Ukraine intensify, so do sanctions from various technology companies as they apply pressure on Russia and show their support for Ukraine.
How we got here: After various Big Tech companies responded to the war in Ukraine by closing offices in Russia and ceasing product sales and services, a second wave of notable technology companies are showing support for Ukraine, per Insider.
What’s next: Russian consumers will bear the brunt of these sanctions and experience firsthand what life is like without these products and services. It remains to be seen if continued pressure from global companies will make a difference as Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine.
What’s the catch: Russia’s proposed plan to break off from the global internet to insulate itself from international dependence could fracture the global network and cause widespread connectivity issues affecting all countries.
