On March 10, Bentley Systems announced that the provider will cease all business with Russia and Belarus. A bit later than others, but calling Russia’s war a war and including Belarus in the measures. Here is the official statement:

“Bentley Systems joins the many companies and leaders in our industry who condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and we add our voice to the urgent calls for peace. We deplore the destruction and tragic loss of life and extend our sympathy and support to all who have been impacted by the war in Ukraine and who continue to suffer.

Bentley Systems has paused sales in Russia and Belarus and continues to strictly apply the export controls and restrictions on business that were already in place. In addition, we are supporting relief efforts and contributing to humanitarian aid for refugees. We fully endorse the actions of governments aimed at ending the war in Ukraine and we express our hope that peace will soon prevail.”
