Drone maker DJI becomes first Chinese company to openly halt business with Russia and Ukraine

  • DJI, the world’s leading drone manufacturer, became the first Chinese company to openly cease operations in Russia and Ukraine in light of “current hostilities.”
  • In a statement on Tuesday, the Shenzhen-based firm said it is “internally reassessing compliance requirements in various jurisdictions,” leading to its decision to temporarily suspend business in both countries.
  • Ahead of the announcement, Ukrainian authorities accused the company of aiding Russia through its products.
  • Ride-sharing firm Didi was reportedly the first Chinese company to announce a Russian exit, but it backpedaled days later without explanation.

Global drone maker DJI has become the first Chinese company to openly cease operations in Russia and Ukraine, citing “current hostilities” as its reason for doing so.

In a statement posted on Tuesday, the Shenzhen-based firm said it is “internally reassessing compliance requirements in various jurisdictions” and would thus “temporarily suspend all business activities” in both countries.
