America’s Corporate Shame-List

My fellow bloggers and any visiting this blog-post, whether American citizens or not, this is a list of the U.S. corporations still doing business in Russia despite the dire need for unified, complete and extensive embargos and sanctions against Putin’s Russia and the obvious war crimes he and the Russian military, under his orders, have committed and are committing daily since February 24, 2022. This exhaustive list compiled by Yale University’s School of Management gives all the American company names that have 1) withdrawn from Russia halting all operations, 2) suspended operations temporarily, 3) scaled back operations while continuing other operations there, 4) buying time postponing future development and/or investments while continuing substantive operations, and 5) defying all demands to exit or implement any reductions.

If you have any moral sense of WHY the sanctions, embargos, and restrictions upon the entire infrastructure and economy of Russia and Putin are not only a must, but the West must also be totally unified in these measures so as to quickly bleed-out and bankrupt Putin’s war machine in Ukraine! This has to include ordinary Americans at home and being acutely cognizant of what we purchase in stores or online or support directly and indirectly with these companies. The list of Category 3, 4, and 5 international corporations is disturbing, and shamefully large. I beg you, let us Americans boycott these American corporations by not giving them one cent of our money, our time, or speak positively of their despicable business in Russia until they do the right thing: STOP, and fast.

To save page-space and time, I am listing here only the well-known American companies in Categories #3, #4, and #5, the ones with seemingly no moral compass. Please go to Yale University’s School of Management (here) for the entire list and detailed descriptions of each category:

Please, let’s do everything we can right now to pressure these corporations and their CEO’s and top executives to take not only the moral high-road, but the humane course as well. Let us be unrelenting until they relent and join a world of civilized, peace-loving humanity.

Let’s choke and strangle Putin and his top-brass so they can no longer wage War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity! Then, when it has completely stopped in Ukraine and they’ve returned to Moscow, help bring Vladimir Putin to the Haag’s International Court of Justice as a war criminal. This will only happen if America, NATO, the EU, and G7, and all other allies complete this to the very end firmly unified, including all ordinary American consumers.
