"We did not welcome them this year given the political situation. We just didn't feel it was appropriate," Shapiro was quoted as saying, BBC reported.

"It wasn't a matter of legal policy for the US, it's a matter of our policy as an organisation," he added.

Shapiro added that a few Russian companies asked to exhibit their products, according to the report.

"We said they could relocate to another country if they were interested," Shapiro said.

Moreover, the report mentioned that the event has about a dozen Ukrainian technology companies, with many showcasing sustainability concepts.
