In addition, companies like Dell and Logitech have also decided recently to halt their operations and withdraw from Russia.

According to Reuters, Nokia and Ericsson will completely exit from Russia in a trend set by various western technology companies like Intel, Netflix, and more. Ericsson hopes to gradually withdraw over the coming months. Meanwhile, Nokia has announced that it plans to exit Russia by the end of the year.

Nokia had previously stated its interest in leaving Russia. However, the company plans to assist its customers throughout the process. "We will retain a formal presence in the country until the legal closure is completed", a Nokia spokesperson said on Monday.
