The South Korean tech giant is the world's biggest memory chip maker and the leading smartphone seller in Russia.
"We continue to actively monitor this complex situation to determine our next steps."
The decision comes as Western governments, sporting organizations and big companies cut Russia off and deal it punishing sanctions over the internationally condemned attack on its neighbor.
South Korea, a key US security ally, also this week announced it would block financial transactions with major Russian banks and their subsidiaries subject to US sanctions.
Samsung is also donating $6 million, including $1 million in consumer electronics as well as voluntary donations from employees, to "actively support humanitarian efforts" and refugees in the region, the firm said.
