Intel has announced that it is suspending all operations in Russia. And at the same time, it closes the Russian development office in Nizhny Novgorod and transfers 1,200 employees to idle with salary retention. Previously, the company had already received a warning from the Ministry of Labor about the inadmissibility of downtime, but this did not stop them.

Many excellent open source tools were developed in this office, including: OpenCV, OpenVINO, CVAT and other libraries for machine learning and GPU computing. As well as popular Vtune and GPA products.

Of course, employees do not believe vague promises, and although the company has offered some employees relocation, many are already looking for a job. In the last message, we mentioned the increase in the number of resumes, and now 1200 more first-class specialists will enter the labor market.
