Apple is in Russia, but not in Ukraine
Interestingly, Apple maintains a location in Moscow, Russia, after having problems with the local government , which has forced it to maintain dedicated staff in its territory, in addition to pre-installing apps arranged by local ministries.
On the Ukraine side, however, Apple does not maintain an official store, but does have an office for local distributors. The company also announced that it would partner with repair shops, supplying unofficial technicians with the original parts and tools they need to repair the company’s devices.
