At least nine people have been killed and power at Europe’s largest nuclear plant has been lost after Russia launched more than 80 missiles across Ukraine overnight.
At least five people were killed in the Lviv region after a rocket hit their home.
Three people were killed in the city of Kherson, where a public transport stop was hit.
One person died and two others were injured following drone and missile strikes in the Dnipropetrovsk region.
Russian strikes cut power at Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. It is now operating on diesel generators, which have enough supplies to last 10 days.
Is this the world we want to live in?
Yet, there are multinational companies that are supporting these modern acts of terror.
Ukraine’s official listing of international sponsors of war includes OpenWay Group, Danieli, TMS Tankers Ltd., Minerva Marine Inc., Thenamaris Ships Management, Delta Tankers Ltd., Dynacom Tankers Management Ltd., Leroy Merlin, Mondi Group/Mondi PLC, eKassir, Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry, Bonduelle, Comnav Technology ltd., P&G, Auchan, Metro and Buzzi Unicem.
Overall, more than 1700 international firms operating in Russia at the start of 2022 continue to do business within the country, one year since the invasion of Ukraine.
Russia spent up to $550M on the massive missile attack on Ukraine on March 9. It took the remaining multinational businesses in Russia 12 days’ worth of taxes to pay for that attack.
When they are counting profits, Ukrainians are counting and mourning lost lives.
The time is ripe to stop all corporate complicity in Russian crimes against humanity! We appeal to all governments of G7 countries to issue business advisories to the remaining companies, informing them of the heightened risks associated with doing business in Russia, and particularly business activity that could benefit the Russian military.
