App making Crimea part of Russia: Apple is investigating the case

Apple faces international criticism for letting the app do the Ukrainian peninsula Crimea a part of Russia.

Apple will "look at", why the app "Cards" has made the Russian-occupied Ukrainian peninsula Crimea a part of Russia.

It says a spokeswoman for the u.s. techgigant, Trudy Muller.

Apple has been met with international criticism of its conduct.

Muller says that it is only in the app, which is used by Apple users in Russia, where Crimea is part of Russia. It brings Apple in line with new legislation in Russia, she claims.

She says that the Apple follows international law and national laws and will right up, "if it is required by law".

- We will look at how we handle the disputed boundaries in our services, and we may make changes in the future as a result of it, she says.

Russia occupied and annexed in the 2014 Crimea in the midst of a popular revolt in the Ukraine against the country's prorussiske regime.

It was the EU and the UNITED states to introduce tough economic sanctions against Russia, which is still in force.

the Case has aroused huge anger in Ukraine, and foreign minister Vadim Pristajko has written on Twitter that Apple "gives the hell in" the suffering that is inflicted on the country.
