Players in the two countries will also no longer be able to access the game, as Niantic pledged their support for Ukraine against Russia’s invasion.

Niantic Labs said in a tweet on Friday:

“We stand with the global community in hoping for peace and a rapid resolution to the violence and suffering in Ukraine.

Niantic’s games are no longer available for download in Russia and Belarus, and gameplay will also be suspended there shortly.”

The company is one of many other tech giants such as Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft suspending their business in Russia over their invasion of Ukraine.

Other similar media companies such as Netflix, Electronic Arts and Apple have also stopped doing business in the country.

They have also raised $75,000 internally by matching the donations of their employees for the humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

Niantic also donated another $200,000 directly to the humanitarian organizations to help the Ukrainian refugees.
