Apple banned RT and Sputnik apps
Apple announced that it has removed from the App Store applications from RT and Sputnik, Russian state media outlets that have been banned by some of the world’s biggest tech companies – such as Meta, Google, Microsoft and even TikTok.
As TechCrunch says, this action by Apple was applied in all markets where the applications were present (with the exception of Russia), being a measure that aims to combat the propaganda of the regime led by Vladimir Putin.
This was not Apple’s only move against Russia. The company also announced that it had suspended sales of all products in this market, a decision that comes shortly after an appeal by Ukraine’s deputy prime minister.
