The once iconic Swedish vodka brand Absolut, now owned by Pernod Ricard, is a sponsor of the Russian genocide in Ukraine. The company has resumed its operation in Russia. Buy their products and some of the money goes directly to spilling more Ukrainian blood. Pernod Ricard’s brands also include Chivas Regal, The Glenlivet, Jameson, Pernod, Seagram’s Gin, Ricard, 51, Martel, Wild Turkey and Havana Club (full list here https://lnkd.in/dgR-r2zQ). Simply stop buying these products, it is more or less a crime against humanity to support companies that still operate in Russia. When business with Russia stops, Russia stops.
Drink any of these iconic brands and you are drinking the blood of Ukrainian children.
All western multinationals still trading with Nazi RuZZia must be forced to pay 100% tax on all their Russian profits since 2014.
All dividend payments to directors and shareholders must be suspended and go to Ukraine.
Yesterday Qin Gang, chicom foreign minister, stated that China will not sell weapons to Russia.
“China will not sell weapons to either side in the war in Ukraine, the country’s foreign minister said today, in response to Western concerns that Beijing could provide military assistance to Russia.
Qin Gang is the highest-level Chinese official to make such an explicit statement about arms sales to Russia.
China has maintained that it is neutral in the conflict, while backing Russia politically, rhetorically and economically at a time when Western nations have imposed punishing sanctions, and sought to isolate Moscow for invading its neighbour.
Mr Qin said China would regulate the export of items with dual civilian and military use.
“Regarding the export of military items, China adopts a prudent and responsible attitude,” he said at a news conference, alongside visiting German counterpart Annalena Baerbock.
“China will not provide weapons to relevant parties of the conflict, and [will] manage and control the exports of dual-use items in accordance with laws and regulations.”
In February, Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, said the government had intelligence suggesting China was considering providing arms and ammunition to Russia.
He warned that such involvement in the Kremlin’s war effort would be a “serious problem”.
Chinese components in Russian weapons
Mr Qin’s remarks came as a senior adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky told Reuters that Ukrainian troops were finding a growing number of components from China in Russian weapons used in Ukraine.
In “the weapons recovered from the battlefield, we continue to find different electronics”, said Vladyslav Vlasiuk, who advises the president’s chief of staff on sanctions policy.
“The trend now is that there is less Western-made components, but more – not hard (to) guess which country – made components. Of course, China,” he said in a video call.
Intelligence gathered by Ukrainian experts from the battlefield and shared with Reuters stated that Chinese-made components were found in a navigation system in Orlan aerial drones that previously used a Swiss system.
The experts also reported finding Chinese parts in the fire-control system in Russian tanks that had previously used French-made parts.
Reuters could not independently verify the intelligence, including whether the components mentioned might have been intended for non-military use or whether they were moved to Russia by a third party.
“We’re picking (up) a lot of different stuff China made,” Mr Vlasiuk said.
Asked whether Chinese companies had provided parts for Russian military hardware, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson’s office told Reuters: “Throughout history, China has launched normal trade co-operation with all countries, including Russia, on the basis of equality and mutual benefit.
“As for military item exports, China has throughout adopted a prudent and responsible attitude. China’s position and actions have always been this way.”
Never trust a despotic shithole like China. I wish I had absolute confidence in our government to keep an eye on the chinks. But, after seeing that 21-year-old jerks can get hold of our top secret info (if true) I have serious doubts.
Yes the chicoms can never be trusted. But I use that word to distinguish between them and the ordinary Chinese. My experience in Hong Kong during the British mandate taught me that when you give freedom to Chinese people, they behave pretty much like us. With RuZZians we just don’t know, because they’ve always been serfs. We can only hope that enlightened Russians such as Kara-Murza, Khodorkovsky and Kasparov can somehow lift Russia out from hell.
With ruskies, we do know, Scradge. They can never be a part of normal civilization. They enjoy being slaves too much and enjoy getting other peoples down to their level. It’s deeply embedded in their shitty chromosomes.
I don’t understand how Western governments allow Western companies to engage in business with this fascist, war-criminal crime syndicate. If people have something like a moral compass, they will boycott this shit.
