Appeal to the World Business and VC Investor Community:

As we are watching the Russian army destroy innocent lives in Ukraine, many of us ask what we can do to help. Here is what you personally can do:

We ask all world businesses to immediately stop any business transactions with companies having any ties to Russian-paying citizens or entities. That includes directly hiring Russian residents, doing business with any company that has employees in Russia, and doing business with any company that has any vendors in Russia.

We ask the VC and investment community to immediately stop all funding of any company and startup with any ties to Russia. We ask for any existing funding and commitments to be terminated. This must apply to all companies with any ties to Russia.

This is not politics. This is a war. While many Russians do not support their government and do not support the war, this, unfortunately, doesn’t change the fact that a part of every dollar you send to Russia directly or indirectly is used to kill a Ukrainian today.

This is a chilling realization but it’s true. When you fund a company or purchase their goods, that money is transferred to Russia in the form of salaries, profits, and purchasing goods. That money is taxable. Taxes are what is used to fund the murderous regime of Russia.

Yes, it’s a scary thought but by funding those companies, you directly help murder innocent people in Ukraine and beyond.

You may think that by doing this you will be punishing innocent people in Russia who do not support the regime. No! You'll be saving innocent lives!!! 

Also, putting economic pressure on the Russian people, although a seemingly punitive measure, is the only peaceful way to apply the pressure necessary to have the people rebel against their murderous leadership. If Russians come out in millions against Putin’s evil regime, they will help the world put an end to this tragedy.

Stop the war now! Stop supporting the regime!
