Vettel, who drives for Aston Martin, said: “I should not go, I will not go. It is wrong to race in the country.
“I am sorry for the innocent people who are being killed for stupid reasons.”
He added he was “shocked” by events in Ukraine, and his decision not to race in Russia was “already made”.
The Russian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place in Sochi on 25 September.
