US Tech Companies Sued Over Russian Withdrawal

Dell, Netflix and Apple are being sued in Russia for no longer providing services in the country. In Dell’s case, payment was made for never delivered items.


A Moscow court has seized 778,526,223 rubles, nearly eleven million euros, from Dell Technologies. It does so following Dell’s refusal to provide services to a Russian IT integrator for VMware, of which Dell is/was the distributor in the country. But those services have already been paid for.

Several Russian newspapers report the seizure. BleepingComputer also asked Dell for a response, but they are not commenting on pending legal matters.

The case is not the only one in Russia. Earlier, there was also a class action against Apple. A law firm is demanding 90 million rubles now that Apple has stopped using Apple Pay in the country. The reasoning here is that a purchased iPhone is worth much less due to Apple’s withdrawal because promised features are now no longer available.

A similar case is also pending against Netflix from the same office. Here, compensation of 60 million rubles is demanded.
