PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is set to exit Russia after 30 years of doing business there, and KPMG LLP is pulling out of Russia and Belarus in response to the war in Ukraine.

In separate statements Sunday, PwC said PwC Russia will leave the global network, and KPMG announced similar measures for its business. PwC has 3 700 partners and staff in Russia, while its rival has more than 4 500 people in Russia and Belarus.

“They did not ask for this senseless war,” the PwC note said. PwC member firms outside Russia will exit any work for Russian entities and individuals subject to sanctions.
