Electrolux has decided to exit Russia and divest the business to local management through a sale of its Russian subsidiary. “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the following sanctions have made it impossible for Electrolux to continue its business in the country – the company explains –. The decision to divest the Russian business to local management is intended to enable a responsible and controlled exit. The divested company will continue to service appliances previously sold by Electrolux in Russia. Electrolux has no production in Russia and will not supply any appliances to the divested company”. In 2021 Electrolux sales in Russia accounted for 4% of Business Area Europe sales and for 1.6% of Group sales.
