Coca-Cola suspends business in Russia
Coca-Cola is suspending operations in Russia in response to President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine, the company said Tuesday.
Why it matters: Sanctions and divestment from the business community have increasingly isolated Russia from the rest of the world. Businesses operating there have a limited ability to collect revenue or pay workers and suppliers.
What they're saying: "Our hearts are with the people who are enduring unconscionable effects from these tragic events in Ukraine," the company wrote in a news release.
- "We will continue to monitor and assess the situation as circumstances evolve."
