Canon suspends product deliveries into Russia

Here’s Canon’s statement: “The violence and destruction being caused by the military attacks on Ukraine is shocking to all of us. We share our heartfelt concerns for our colleagues and the Ukrainian people whose lives have been deeply affected. As part of the world-wide relief efforts supporting Ukraine, we are donating to international aid and humanitarian organizations in Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia. As of earlier this week, Canon EMEA suspended all product deliveries into Russia. We continue monitoring the fast-evolving situation and developments. We stand united in desire for peace”.

What does it mean?

Well, as far as we know, FedEx, DHL, and UPS have stopped delivering into Russia a few days ago. Also, major airline companies have also halted their operation in Russia. Nevertheless, products can be delivered by land, through Europe, and from the east as well. Does Canon EMEA’s announcement relevant to Canon’s USA, Canon Japan, and more branches? Will consumers located in Russia be able to order a Canon camera from B&H and/or Adorama? Basically, the camera can ‘fly’ to Europe, and from there, enter Russia via land, until now, as Canon declared to suspend all product deliveries into Russia. Will other camera companies follow?
