LONDON – Two higher-ups Huawei in Britain left their posts after their companies failed to respond to Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Huawei UK itself supports the move of two of their bosses who expressed a stance against the Russian invasion.

Those who resigned were Sir Andre Cahn and Sir Ken Olisa who served as two directors at Huawei UK. Both left their posts because they felt Huawei was reluctant to condemn the Russian invasion.

Asked by BBC News whether Huawei would continue to do business with Russia, the company declined to comment. “We do not comment further,” he told BBCSaturday (12/3/2022).

It is believed that the two Huawei bosses felt this was a complex situation for the company and went against their expectations as the UK board of directors.

An official Huawei said: “Sir Andrew Cahn and Sir Ken Olisa brought a wealth of business and technology experience to Huawei UK’s board of directors when they were appointed, in 2015 and 2018, respectively.

“Both have shown strong support for Huawei’s commitment to the UK and have helped uphold the highest standards of corporate governance.”
