Games Workshop, the UK-based company behind the Warhammer products, has become the latest gaming company to take a stand against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The company just announced that it is suspending all sales of its products in Russia, as a consequence of the country’s invasion of Ukraine.
“We are terribly saddened by the horrific events taking place in Ukraine,” wrote Games Workshop on their website. “Our heartfelt thoughts go out to all those affected by Russia’s actions. In light of this, Games Workshop is suspending all sales of Warhammer products into Russia. We didn’t take this decision lightly. We know that there are many Russian hobbyists who don’t condone the war. Yet, we must stand with those suffering.”
Many gaming and technology companies have ceased operations in Russia following a call from Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, Mykhailo Fedorov, to do so. These include Activision-Blizzard, EA, Take-Two, CD Projekt, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Sony, and Epic. This is part of a much larger business trend that has seen global firms withdraw from doing business with Russia due to the war in Ukraine.
