The statement also said that Starbucks will continue to pay its nearly 2,000 Russian employees for six months and help them transition to new jobs.

On March 8, the company suspended all business activity in Russia due to Western sanctions. The halt included shipping all Starbucks products and temporarily shuttering cafes.
