The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®:
“The invasion of Ukraine is a tragic and illegal assault on the people and independent nation of Ukraine and an attack on democracy. We call on Russia to stop its attack and end the needless loss of life and human suffering. As an American trade association, we believe in the power of democracy and the recognition of duly elected leaders. We applaud those who took to the streets in Russian cities to peacefully demonstrate against this action by their government.
The Consumer Technology Association fully supports tough sanctions on Russia. We will inform our members to comply with the new export controls issued in response to Russia’s actions. CTA is committed to serving as a resource for the administration during implementation.”
