Cisco Halts All Business Activities in Russia Due to Ukraine Conflict


Check Point Research shows that global cyberattacks are increasing since the start of the conflict.

Cisco Systems halted all business operations, including sales and services, in Russia and Belarus in response to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins released a letter outlining his company’s plans for the foreseeable future as the invasion continues. The latest news includes Russia launch missile strikes near the western city of Ukraine, Lviv.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Dell, HPE, IBM Cloud, Oracle and VMware and other cloud companies have already stopped selling to new customers or serving existing customers in Russia.

Shutting down Cisco operations in Russia is the ‘right decision’

Robbins said halting all business operations in Russia and Belarus was the “right move”. And Cisco is working with customers and partners in the extended region to ensure business continuity.

“We will be in contact with our customers and partners in Russia and Belarus with further details,” he said. “We recognize that many people, including all of our teams, are affected by this war.”

Cisco teams are “working tirelessly” on behalf of customers and partners, Robbins said. He will answer questions and provide updates as the crisis develops.

To help Ukrainians, Cisco enables automatic renewal of all software or services for its Ukrainian customers free of charge. Plus, it offers a free year of Webex meetings. Moreover, it provides free calls to Ukraine.
