There has been no explanation provided for Russia being banned from CES 2023. The Consumer Technology Association, which runs the event, has simply stated that Russia is “not welcome”. It is unclear if this ban is permanent or temporary. In the past, Russian technology companies have participated in CES, including Yandex, which showcased its driverless car at the event in 2020. It is unclear what impact this ban will have on Russian technology companies and their ability to showcase their products and innovations at CES in the future.
