The military offensive that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has launched against Ukraine has been met with a strong response from the international community from the outset: both from public representatives, as well as from some large companies and from the civilian population. In addition to the strong sanctions imposed by the United States, the European Union and the United Kingdom —from the closure of airspace to Russian airlines to the partial expulsion of Russia from the international payment platform SWIFT— the closure of the or the departure from the country of numerous companies that have refused to maintain their businesses there as a sign of opposition to the war.
In the video analysis that accompanies this news, the editor of EL PAÍS María Fernández Lago intends to unravel the main consequences of these measures: who has left and why? What are the main objectives they pursue? Is it already having an impact on the stability of the Kremlin? Who will mainly suffer its effects, the great Russian oligarchs or the civilian population? Beyond good intentions, do they entail any risk?
Not all measures are equally effective and not everyone can adopt the same position. The size of the company, the market conditions or those of its workers in the country have a great influence. This video will also answer who has not left and why, and what will happen to the employees of those companies that have. Among the latter, some leading companies in different sectors stand out, such as Inditex in the textile industry; Apple and Microsoft in the technological world; o Volkswagen and Toyota in the automobile sector.
