“On behalf of 150,000 Oracle employees worldwide and in support of both the elected government of Ukraine and the people of Ukraine, Oracle Corporation has already suspended all operations in the Russian Federation”, — it is said in the message.
Earlier, the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mikhail Fedorov on Twitter asked Oracle and SAP corporations to stop servicing customers and companies from the Russian Federation.
Oracle is an American corporation, the second largest software manufacturer by revenue, the largest manufacturer of software for organizations, and a major supplier of server equipment.
In 2018, Russian state-owned companies and government agencies spent more than 13.3 billion rubles on licenses and technical support services for products of the American Oracle Corporation. Among the largest customers were Sberbank, Rostelecom, the Federal Tax Service, the Central Bank and Rosatom.
Against the background of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, which began on February 24, many foreign companies announced their withdrawal from the Russian market. On the eve it became known that Fortinet, the largest manufacturer of firewalls, blocked access to its product to customers from the Russian Federation who fell under sanctions. And the American provider of software and services in the field of information security Websense (also known as Forcepoint, headquartered in Austin, Texas) has severed relations with all its Russian partners.
