Toymaker Lego pulls out of Russia indefinitely

Lego has said it will stop operating in Russia indefinitely due to “continued extensive disruption”.

The firm stopped delivering products to Russia in March following the invasion of Ukraine, but its shops remained open as most rival retailers pulled out.

Lego said it would now end its partnership with Inventive Retail Group which runs 81 shops on Lego’s behalf.

It did not mention Russia’s invasion of Ukraine for pulling out of Russia.

A Lego spokeswoman said: “When the Lego Group stopped shipments to Russia in early March, we also ceased all commercial activity and put almost all our employees on extended leave.”

The business said it was cutting most of its Moscow-based team and has “provided 70 employees with financial packages to support them as they look for new opportunities”.
