We are all shocked by Russia’s invasion of democratic Ukraine and its ambition to virtually restore the old Soviet Union. At its core, the threat is directed against our freedom and the foundations of our world order. This is underpinned now for the second time by Putin’s threat of nuclear weapons against anyone who supports Ukraine.
Under normal circumstances, we as a company do not comment on politics and we do not call for a boycott for or against anyone. We are convinced that the situation is different today as we are challenged by a fundamental attack on everything we stand for. It is about our freedom as entrepreneurs and citizens of this country that is not negotiable, and there is no cost-benefit calculation and no break-even point. It’s all about the big picture for us.
The decision is now digital, no room for grey areas. We stand for freedom, we stand against the aggressor and firmly against Putin.
We love Russia and the Russian people, but in this situation, we simply cannot do business with its companies and citizens as long as this attack and threat continues.
Carlsquare will cease all business activities with citizens of RUS and companies of RUS, regardless of the sanctions lists in place. We cannot do business with people whose government threatens our existence. Accordingly, we will now also terminate individual mandates and cease activities.
Ukraine is not only defending its freedom, but also ours. Everyone must now decide for themselves what contribution they can make as citizens and entrepreneurs. We will gladly refrain from doing business with the aggressor.
Let us all support Ukraine instead.
We will support our friends from Ukraine, especially our Globalscope Partner Capital Times who are fighting for their lives and our freedom at the moment.
