March 4, 2022—Ford Motor Co. and General Motors earlier this week suspended all operations in Russia due to the country's invasion of Ukraine.

According to a report from News Nation Now via WDAF Kansas City, Ford said its decision is effective immediately and will remain active until further notice. The automaker already has "limited its operations" in the country over the last few years, only having minor stakes in a few plants that are involved in the production of commercial vans.

"While we don’t have significant operations in Ukraine, we do have a strong contingent of Ukrainian nationals working at Ford around the world and we will continue to support them through this time," the automaker said in a news release.

General Motors doesn't produce any vehicles in Russia, though a Detroit Free Press report citing a GM spokesperson says the automaker sells about 3,000 Cadillac and Chevrolet vehicles in the country a year.

Per the WDAF report, GM is suspending exports to Russia "until further notice."

Volkswagen, Volvo and Daimler all have also suspended business in Russia.
