Plus other Niantic games Ingress and Pikmin Bloom.

Pokémon Go will suspend its gameplay in Russia and Belarus for the foreseeable future, developer Niantic has now announced.

The game has already been pulled from the app stores in these countries, while in-game functionality is going dark “soon”.

Niantic will do similar things for its other games, including its original title Ingress and Nintendo collaboration Pikmin Bloom.

“We stand with the global community in hope for peace and a speedy resolution to the violence and suffering in Ukraine,” developer Niantic wrote last night in a statement released via Twitter.

“Niantic’s games are no longer available for download in Russia and Belarus, and gameplay will also be suspended there shortly.”

Niantic is the latest company to withdraw support from Russia and its allies after taking similar steps
