Since Vladimir V. Putin, ordered the invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, more than 100 companies across nearly every industry have severed their business relationships with the country or greatly scaled them back, says NBC News. The point is to end the violence as soon as possible, not to punish regular working-class Russian people. The goal of calling out these companies is to pressure them to work with the U.S. government and its allies that have imposed economic sanctions against Russia, says CBS News.

Many companies have continued to refuse to fully exit the country, putting profits above morals and pretending they can simply plug their fingers into their ears. These companies need to know that there can be no middle ground. Voicing “humanitarian concerns for the general Russian citizenry” is inadequate. Boycotts will help convince regular Russians to take a stance against their violent, corrupt government.
