M&S suspends shipments to Turkish franchisee's Russian business

By Reuters

LONDON – British food and clothing retailer Marks & Spencer has suspended shipments to its Turkish franchisee’s Russian business following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it said on Thursday.

FiBA Group has worked in partnership with the UK retailer since 1999. It operates 48 M&S stores in Russia and 10 in Ukraine as well as stores in Turkey.

On Wednesday, British online fashion retailers ASOS and Boohoo said they had suspended sales in Russia, joining a growing list of companies shunning the country.

M&S said it was building on its existing support for UNICEF UK’s Ukraine appeal with a 1.5 million-pound ($2.0 million package of aid.
