Apple executive Lisa Jackson met with Ukraine’s foreign minister Vadym Prystaiko at Davos, two months after Apple controversially altered two apps to display annexed Crimea as part of Russia.

Prystaiko tweeted a photo of himself alongside Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives.

His tweet said the pair discussed Apple’s “next steps” in the Ukrainian market, with a follow-up tweet hinting that the Crimea issue was also discussed.

MacDailyNews Note: In November 2019, Apple began displaying Crimea as Russian territory on Apple Maps and its Weather app when the apps were viewed from Russia.
