NEW YORK (AP) — Baker Hughes, a major U.S. oil services company, added its name Saturday to the growing list of U.S. companies that are pulling back from  Russia in response to Moscow’s war against Ukraine. Baker Hughes made its announcement one day after similar moves by oil rivals Halliburton Co. and Schlumberger.The steps from the Houston, Texas-based businesses come as they respond to U.S. sanctions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
