UK: Company owned by PM's father-in-law still operating in Russia, report says; incl. co. comments

The company that pays Akshata Murthy, wife of British PM Rishi Sunak, £11.5 million a year is still operating in Russia, report says, 5 November 2022

Infosys, the company owned by the UK prime minister's billionaire father-in-law, is still operating in Moscow, eight months after it said it was pulling out, The Guardian reported.

The Indian IT firm said it was exiting the Russian market in March following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, yet it still has a staffed office in the Russian capital and is paying subcontractors to carry out IT services for a global client, according to the newspaper. 

The Moscow office of Infosys still has a company plaque outside on a wall, per the report. Company sources told The Guardian that some administrative staff were still working there as part of the process to leave Russia...

A spokesperson told The Guardian that it was seeking to end the arrangement and had taken measures to "suspend its operations in Russia". They said employees working on client projects "have been transitioned out" and that Infosys was still paying two Moscow-based subcontractors to carry out work for a client.

The spokesperson added: "Infosys does not have any active relationship with local Russian enterprises. The process of transitioning a few remaining partner and administrative staff is under way"...
