The organisers of the ‘Mobile World Congress 2022’ (MWC 2022) have announced to ban some Russian companies from exhibiting at the conference in Barcelona, Spain, that is scheduled to kick off from February 28.

Russia’s participation at the ‘MWC 2022’ is being restricted by the organisers GSMA following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

“The GSMA strongly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The situation is fast-moving, and we understand that various governments are considering broader sanctions against Russia,” the organisers said in a statement late on Friday.

In light of this emerging situation and considering the tragic loss of life, “MWC seems immaterial under the circumstances”.
