Praying – and not without hope – for a swift, just, and lasting resolution to Putin’s war of devastation in Ukraine, I stand with Ukraine’s people and its elected government.
No longer doing business in Russia means no new partners there, no renewals, no partner listings. Relative to the abomination that is Putin’s invasion this is a tiny thing, but it’s done.
For the record, I fully support the sanctions regime. As a past visitor to Russia, I take no pleasure whatsoever in the impact it will have on its citizens, but by its immoral actions, Putin’s government lost the right to participate in the global financial infrastructure. Denied the means to sustain the war and perhaps to repeat its pattern of behaviour elsewhere, I hope that it comes to its senses soon. Enough is enough.
