In the wake of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, SAP and Oracle have both announced that they are suspending all business operations in Russia.
The decision from the two major IT vendors came in the wake of a request from Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov, who posted letters he’d written to both companies on Twitter yesterday.
In his letter to Oracle, Fedorov wrote: “The IT industry always supports values of responsibility and democracy…now, more than ever, people’s lives depend on your choice.”
Oracle replied to the tweet, stating that on behalf of the people of Ukraine and its elected government, the company has “suspended all operations in the Russian Federation”. However, the company has not provided any further comment on the situation since the tweet was posted.
