The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has published an infographic with the names of international companies that have announced their withdrawal from the Russian market due to the attack on Ukraine. The list includes the engineering industry, financial sector and logistics, energy and aviation, goods and entertainment, and the technology industry.
“More than a hundred well-known companies have already decided to leave the Russian market. There will be more and more of them every day,” the Ministry said.
Meanwhile, Russian media outlets report that mass anti-war rallies are taking place in Russia, during which protesters are detained en masse with brute force.
Currently, more than 2,500 people have been detained in 44 cities of the Russian Federation. Most of the detainees were in Moscow – about 500 people, Novosibirsk – 279, St. Petersburg – 267, and Yekaterinburg – 206 people.
However, the Russian army continues its offensive, attacking peaceful Ukrainian cities. In particular, on Sunday, 6 March, the Vinnytsia airport and the military unit in Havryshivka were fired upon with rockets. The explosions caused a fire.
President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Vinnytsia airport had been attacked by eight rockets and was completely destroyed. He again appealed to Western politicians to close the sky over Ukraine to Russian aircraft.
“If you do not do this, if you do not give us at least planes so that we can defend ourselves, then there is only one conclusion: you also want us to be killed very slowly,” the Head of State added.
Zelensky stressed that this is the responsibility of world politicians.
