The Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine posted an open letter on Twitter Apples CEO Tim Cook. Russia launched a full-scale offensive on February 24 and the country is under attack. In his tweet, Mikhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s vice prime minister says he has contacted Cook and asked Russia to stop selling all its products and services. “I have contacted Apple CEO @ Tim_Cook to block the Apple Store for citizens of the Russian Federation and to support the US government’s embargo package! If you agree to receive the President-assassin, you must be satisfied with the only available site, Russia 24, “Fedorov tweeted.

Fedorov, Ukraine’s minister for digital transformation, even appealed to Cook to block access to the App Store in Russia. “We are convinced that such a move would inspire Russia’s youth and activists to actively end the shameful military aggression,” Fedorov said in his letter.
Apple has not commented on the letter from Ukraine’s prime minister.
The United States has imposed sanctions on Russia, barring US companies, including Apple and other technology giants, from providing services to the Russian armed forces or the defense ministry.
Meanwhile, Cook went on Twitter and said the agency would support local humanitarian efforts. “I am deeply concerned about the situation in Ukraine. We are doing what we can for our team there and will support local humanitarian efforts. I’m thinking of the people who are on the brink of disaster right now and joining in the call for peace, “Cook said in a tweet.
