Russia has been making headlines since the invasion of Ukraine, resulting in many companies pulling out of the country as a result.

Russia reportedly had plans to block Instagram, and rumors surfaced of McDonald’s shutting down across Russia. Now, Nike has revealed their plans for Russia moving forward. Reports noted Nike would be leaving Russia permanently, following their decision to temporarily suspend operations three months ago. Three months ago, Nike effectively suspended operations at all of its stores in Russia after Putin pushed forward with invading Ukraine. This Thursday, Nike announced:

“Our priority is to ensure we are fully supporting our employees while we responsibly scale down our operations over the coming months.”
