I am deeply concerned with the situation in Ukraine. We're doing all we can for our teams there and will be supporting local humanitarian efforts. I am thinking of the people who are right now in harm's way and joining all those calling for peace.— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) February 25, 2022
While Apple does not operate any retail locations in Ukraine, the Cupertino tech giant does work with authorized resellers inside the country. Additionally, according to the Kyiv Post, Apple had registered an LLC in Ukraine's capital city in 2021.
Apple also had opened a corporate office in Moscow in early February, complicating its situation in the region.
