Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said he expects many more U.S. companies to follow Microsoft Corp. in cutting ties to Russia, with no sign of the war in Ukraine ending.  

“We have to do whatever we can in as many places as we can to support he Ukrainian people,” Walsh told Jon Ferro on Bloomberg TV Friday. “I think that there will be a lot more companies in America,” and elsewhere in the world, that “will be taking steps like this against Russia,” he said.
