Ford Motor Co. said it’s suspending operations in Russia, joining companies across the world in pulling back following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

The automaker told its joint-venture partners that it’s halting work immediately, according to a statement Tuesday. Ford had already been winding down its Russian operations, which today consist of commercial van manufacturing and Russian sales through a minority interest in the Sollers Ford joint venture, the company said.
