Apple confirmed Tuesday it has halted online sales in Russia after
the ruble plummeted to an all-time low against the dollar. And
more tech companies could follow its lead, analysts say.
“Due to extreme fluctuations in the value of the ruble, our online
store in Russia is currently unavailable while we review pricing,”
Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said in a statement. “We
apologize to customers for any inconvenience.”
