-- Apple is closing up its online shop in Russia, for now.
The company said today it is suspending online sales to Russia as the country's currency, the ruble, continues to go on a wild ride.
"Due to extreme fluctuations in the value of the rouble, our online store in Russia is currently unavailable while we review pricing. We apologize to customers for any inconvenience," Apple said in a statement to ABC News.
