Chinese company DJI Technology Co suspends sales in Ukraine & Russia to prevent the use of its drones in combat to cause harm; incl. co comment

"China's DJI halts Russia, Ukraine sales to prevent use of its drones in combat", 27 April 2022

... DJI Technology Co said it will temporarily suspend business in Russia and Ukraine to ensure its products are not used in combat, making it the first major Chinese firm to cite the conflict in halting sales in Russia.

Ukrainian officials and citizens have accused DJI of leaking data on the Ukrainian military to Russia - allegations the world's largest maker of consumer and industrial drones has called "utterly false".

A DJI spokesperson said...

"DJI abhors any use of our drones to cause harm, and we are temporarily suspending sales in these countries in order to help ensure no-one uses our drones in combat."
