Boycott Russia
Boycott Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon!

Boycott Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon!

Each time we make a cup of coffee have our favorite cereal, eat our favorite snacks, and confectionery we may be helping a company that refuses to turn its backs on Russia.

When we feed our pets their favorite pet food, we may be contributing to this war and helping to boost the Russian economy and ‘Putin’s War’.

The only way to force these companies to withdraw from Russia is to hit them where it hurts, in their pockets and if sales started to drop on a Global scale they would think twice about trading with Russia.

We all need to do our part albeit perhaps a small part until companies like Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon learn a lesson.

“If you think you are not affected by what is going on in the world at the moment, you are very much mistaken, regardless if you are a household or a business, prices are rising because of Russia. If you are not affected directly you will be affected indirectly. We need to help our governments put a stop to this w#r once and for all”.

About Nestlé.

Nestlé S.A. is a Swiss multinational food and drinks processing conglomerate corporation headquartered in Vevey, Vaud, Switzerland. It is the largest food company in the world, measured by revenue and other metrics, since 2014. It ranked No. 64 on the Fortune Global 500 in 2017 and No. 33 in the 2016 edition of the Forbes Global 2000 list of largest public companies.

Nestlé’s products include baby food (some including human milk oligosaccharides), medical food, bottled water, breakfast cereals, coffee and tea, confectionery, dairy products, ice cream, frozen food, pet foods, and snacks. Twenty-nine of Nestlé’s brands have annual sales of over 1 billion CHF (about US$1.1 billion), including Nespresso, Nescafé, Kit Kat, Smarties, Nesquik, Stouffer’s, Vittel, and Maggi. Nestlé has 447 factories, operates in 189 countries, and employs around 339,000 people. It is one of the main shareholders of L’Oreal, the world’s largest cosmetics company.

Nestlé was formed in 1905 by the merger of the “Anglo-Swiss Milk Company”, established in 1866 by brothers George and Charles Page, and “Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé”, founded in 1867 by Henri Nestlé. The company grew significantly during the First World War and again following the Second World War, expanding its offerings beyond its early condensed milk and infant formula products. The company has made a number of corporate acquisitions, including Crosse & Blackwell in 1950, Findus in 1963, Libby’s in 1971, Rowntree Mackintosh in 1988, Klim in 1998, and Gerber in 2007.

Final Thoughts From the Editor.

Anyone that buys products from companies that trade in Russia has blood on their hands.

Any company that trades with Russia has blood on its hands and any person that buys from these companies is attributing to Ukraine’s Atrocities. For me, I will not be buying Nescafe Coffee or Gourmet Perle Cat Food, or other products from the list on Nestlé. I have made the change and so can you.

Angry Bee Who Is Me!

I may not even make a massive dent as I am one bee, but a swarm of bees can do a lot of damage.

***

Anonymous is also on the Warpath and they are targeting the companies that refuse to not trade with Russia. https://www.hstoday.us/featured/anonymous-hackers-fire-warning-shot-at-companies-refusing-to-pull-out-of-russia/

If I had any say in our government I would impose sanctions on trading gold in Russia. I would also put sanctions on any brands still trading in Russia but also trade with the rest of the world. I would hit them where it hurt in their pockets. If companies could no longer trade in the UK and all brands were removed off the shelves until they pulled out of Russia it would play an important part in helping to end the funding of this w#ar Putin has started.

I am sure the public would understand and agree under the circumstances this measure would bolster the demand on helping end this w#r.

Trading in Russia will uncover many layers similar to a traditional Russian Matryoshka doll. Boris Johnson said Britain wants to “see who really owns the companies and properties that are talked about.

He continued to say “We are going to stop Russian companies raising money on U.K. markets, and we are even with our American friends going to stop them trading in pounds and dollars.”

If I had any say…

  • I would stop all lorries going in and out of Russia via Adjacent Borders.
  • I would close the borders on Russia and not let anyone in (or out).
  • I would introduce special visas to stop mules crossing the borders (if the above was not an option).
  • I would stop Gold from being traded in and out of Russia.
  • I would put sanctions on all vaults holding Gold for Russian Oligarchs (I think Putin has a secret stash of precious metals and precious gems in his own hidden vaults.
  • I would put sanctions on all brands/companies still trading with Russia and ban their products being sold in the UK/World, until they withdraw. (No more Nescafe Coffee or Kitkats I’m afraid).
  • I would encourage every country in the world to Boycott Russia.

  1. Introduction – Censorship of Content.

Censorship, Seizures & Oppression. We are monitored for what we write, say, or do. We are being censored and we are slowly having our civil liberties taken away without realizing it. We are essentially batteries in the matrix.

When I write certain controversial articles I have found that I sometimes have to jump through hoops to get them published. I first noticed a few days ago when I tried publishing an article about fiat money and precious metals that it kept coming back with a 500 error message, I quickly came to the conclusion that the content in my article was being censored as it was of a sensitive nature.

I tried sharing ‘Mike Maloney’ “The Biggest Scam In The History of Mankind”

I have embedded the video. Below you will find in a previous article I have written all forbidden words, that will get your website or channel banned. I have since added to the list some words that are reporting censorship problems like R#ss#a, P#tin, W#r, and C#nfl#ct Br#xit, L##kD#wn, C#vid. So even if you have written content or mentioned it verbally you may end up being struck off social media platforms or get penalized by search engines. I have purposely redacted certain letters and replaced them with hashtags to make it difficult for algorithms to decipher. You may see these words on other sites but do you actually want to run the risk of your website or channel being blocked.

2. About Mike Maloney.

Mike Maloney is the host of the smash-hit video series, Hidden Secrets of Money; former Rich Dad/Poor Dad advisor; author of the best-selling precious metals book, Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver. For more than a decade, Mike’s traveled the world sharing his economic insights with audiences from Hong Kong to Rome and from Silicon Valley to Wall Street. ‘Mike Maloney’ “The Biggest Scam In The History of Mankind”

3. Forbidden Words.

I found from building websites that certain keywords are forbidden and if you own domain names with these words, google or any other search engine will not index or rank your websites. https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/banned-bitcoin-domain-names/

bitcoin

The same happened when I tried posting a “C#vid” domain for sale and got my internet provider blocking the post and had no choice but to delete it off my site.

Below you will see more keywords being censored:

(Just because you may see the words on other websites or social media platforms it is only a matter of time when algorithms crawl and flag them). You do not want your website or channel to disappear. Choose your words carefully. If you do want to use the words without using hashtags I suggest typing out your paragraph and embedding it as an image.

4. Freezing Assets

Somebody, that I follow and admire is a guy called “Rob Moore – robmoore.com” who made a valid point which I said I would share with my readers that the Oligarchs have had their assets frozen but have been trading in the UK since the mid-80s early 90s why were their assets not looked into then?

https://www.facebook.com/robmooreprogressive/videos/647384539917623/

Why has it only just now come to light that these Oligarchs have connections with P#tin?

I speculate they were making large donations to the UK economy, so now they have served their purpose and any association that is deemed to fuel the fire have had their assets seized and have been booted out, which is double standard hypocrisy. I personally would not have done business with them from the start and would have refused donations.

Do the powers that be expect people to believe that such wealth may have come legitimately and why were no questions asked when Billions were put through our banking system, why were these people not vetted before they were allowed into this country and why people with such vast wealth were not investigated until now?

I remember a measly £50K coming into my bank account once and they were like rats down a sewer pipe, yet these people were never put under the radar until now?

Rob also went on to say we are being suppressed with censorship with our lack of ability to protest and our restrictions of freedom of speech if it is deemed we are found to step out of line, say or do anything that goes against the beliefs of the powers that be, we will be punished. Mainstream media is dying hence why a lot of newspapers online are introducing paywalls giving you the first couple of lines of a news article and forcing you to pay to read the rest. Hence that is why there is an outcry about “Fake News” because unverified sources will not be credible and these news outlets do have to abide by a code of conduct hence do not like social media platforms spreading news that is not sourced by them. Printed newspapers are declining and are being replaced by online apps and social media channels and podcasts.

5. Rob Moore.

Who is Rob More:

Rob Moore is a self-made property investor, businessman, entrepreneur, best-selling author, world record holder, speaker, pilot & proud dad, who co-owns 7 companies in property, lettings & finance.

6. Liquidating Assets.

What happens to all the seized mansions, superyachts, fine art, and supercars?

Will the assets be sold off to boost the UK economy or will they be sold or returned to the owners after the w#r is over?

In fact who would buy assets that have been confiscated?

One has to wonder who will the Oligarchs support in this game of power. Their lifestyle will not be affected as no doubt they will have returned to their mansions in their homeland, they just will have to live off their worthless fiat currency.

7. Freezing Bank Accounts.

By freezing bank accounts, billionaires. millionaires or anyone with wealth will not just rely on fiat currency to survive. An era of cryptocurrency (ICOs) and NFTs can potentially make investments untraceable. Furthermore, how is P#tin still funding his w#r when his fiat money is not worth the paper it is printed on? He obviously has Gold, Precious Metals, Gems, and Diamonds. He may be also selling his crude oil to countries that do not oppose what he is doing.

8. History Repeating Itself.

On June 5, 1933, the United States went off the gold standard, a monetary system in which currency is backed by gold, when Congress enacted a joint resolution nullifying the right of creditors to demand payment in gold. 1933 to 1974 it was illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold in the form of gold bullion, without a special license. On January 1, 1975, these restrictions were lifted and gold can now be freely held in the U. S. without any licensing or restrictions of any kind. and the Executive Order 6102 which was signed on April 5, 1933, by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt “forbidding the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States.” The executive order was made under the authority of the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by the Emergency Banking Act in March 1933. The limitation on gold ownership in the United States was repealed after President Gerald Ford signed a bill legalizing private ownership of gold coins, bars, and certificates by an Act of Congress, codified in Pub.L. 93–373, which went into effect December 31, 1974.

However, for the Russians, this will be another sanction that I think needs to be implemented to stop other countries from receiving their “Confl#ct Gold”. Any country that is deemed to trade Gold with Russia should be sanctioned.

It is only a matter of time once the west realizes that these Billionaires and P#tin will not be stopped unless the Gold trade is restricted and the Sale of Precious Metals and Gems in and out of Russia.

People trading precious metals and gems should perform due diligence on the buyer and the seller. I believe in paper trails.

Sanctions should be imposed to stop Russians from trading with Gold and other precious metals and gems.

9. Digital Assets.

I do believe there is another way and have suspected for some time that certain digital assets may have an element of money laundering going on, as an example, I just read today that some domain extensions ending with .xyz have sold for £50K in terms of SEO these domain extensions are worthless and not beneficial to any company.

I hear you…, 50K is nothing if you want to move money but what if you sold 20 of them you would have made £1M.

https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/dot-xyz-domain-extension-trustworthiness/

I personally would not use them or recommend anyone to buy them and I would certainly never spend ridiculous amounts of money on them. Furthermore, domain names rely on SEO and set parameters where you want the traffic to come from with GEO Fencing and GEO Targeting to be able to be indexed and ranked for the targetted location: https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/geo-targeting-and-geo-fencing-cctlds/ Domains are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them unless they are short one-word dot coms or top-level domains and have equity attached to them.

10. Money Laundering.

Money Laundering is a serious offense that will land you behind bars.

You should do due diligence on transactions over £10,000 regardless if it is a domain name that you’ve sold or a bar of gold. It is worth noting that most marketplaces collect users’ data at the time of registration but somebody off the street you need to vet them

On 10 January 2020 changes to the Government’s Money Laundering Regulations came into force. They update the UK’s AML regime to incorporate international standards set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and to transpose the EU’s 5th Money Laundering Directive.

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/991/part/2/made

https://www.fca.org.uk/firms/financial-crime/money-laundering-regulations

https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/money-laundering-domain-names/

11. Exporting Luxury Goods.

The UK has announced a ban on the export of Luxury Goods to Russia and Belarus, Apparel, Accessories, Jewellery, Luxury British Vehicles, Planes, and Yachts all will be banned for export.

According to Sky News, the new import duty hike will represent a 35 percentage point rise on current rates, which are different for each product, and will hit £900m worth of key products such as Russian vodka, metals, fertilizers, and other commodities, (yet in another breathe the UK are stopping all imports, so this seems to be unclear and rather confusing, either we are doing business with Russia or we are not) Any country that does business with Russia should be penalized?

All export finance support is also being withdrawn, meaning the UK will no longer issue any new guarantees, loans, and insurance for exports to the countries.

Does this mean that these luxury brands which have lost one source of income will put their prices up to meet their losses? Bond Street Jewellers to and Aston Martins, McLarens, and Bentleys all may go up in price.

https://news.sky.com/story/ukraine-war-uk-bans-luxury-goods-exports-to-russia-and-hikes-import-tariffs-on-products-including-vodka-12566619

12. Conclusion.

The safest way to store your wealth is by investing in gold. Gold Bullion comes in many forms, it could be coins, ingots, bars, or jewelry. You can start an investment with one gram of gold or silver, your money is much safe invested into precious metals than it is sitting in a bank somewhere.

Most Gold is stored in vaults depending on how much wealth a person has, which will determine the location of the precious metals. Obviously, gold and other precious metals such as silver, palladium, and platinum can also be stored in-home/office safes, although ideally they should be stored in vaults. Bullion Vault will store your gold automatically.

With this said it makes me wonder if sanctions of transferring Gold Bullion in and out of Russia will be the next thing on the horizon?

I do not believe import and export in Russia and Belarus can be stopped entirely. As in the video clip, I shared the other day that Russian lorries were tailgated in Poland on the border of Belarus importing Medicine and Food. https://fb.watch/bHwmAUEW3N/

Put it this way if Class A Drugs are being sold on black markets worldwide, how are the producers distributing and supplying something that is illegal? The same should be said with anything that is or could be banned will have a higher street value and will be in more demand with strategies to smuggle especially in lorries.

So yes I do agree with the sanctions but I am curious what will happen to all the seized assets that no one seems to be talking about. Would it not be a good idea to house the Ukrainians coming to the UK, considering everything they have and are still going through? I’m sure that would hit a raw nerve or two for the Oligarchs and P#tin.

13. About Me.

I do not have any political or economic background. However, I do have experience in security considering I used to jointly run a security company with my ex-husband “Alan Richard Barnes” called “Siren Security” in Cardiff in 1993 -2001 with 32 manned guards as well as undercover covert operations. Alan is sadly no longer with us and passed away in May 2021.

All The World Leaders Need To Turn Their Backs on Russia.

Breaking News.

Two US journalists were shot and one has died. A US journalist working in Ukraine has been shot dead in the town of Irpin, outside Kyiv, police say. US film-maker Brent Renaud was reportedly killed by Russian forces in Ukraine. Brent Renaud was an award-winning US filmmaker whose work has appeared in the New York Times.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/brent-renaud-ukraine-russia-american-journalist-killed/

Other News:

The Middle East is helping Russia and its soldiers are being promised $3000 per month up to 50 times more than the Syrian soldier’s monthly salary. Syria’s military has begun recruiting troops from its own ranks to fight alongside Russian forces in Ukraine. 16,000 volunteers from the Middle East are being deployed alongside Russian-backed rebels fighting in Ukraine, as the two-week-old invasion struggles to maintain momentum.

What I would do is get Ukraine to offer the Syrians double of what P#tin is paying them on the condition they turn on Russia. I would get donations from around the world to pay the Syrians off.

The world needs to turn its backs on this dictator not even buy him a cup of coffee. It is predicted that Russia next week will become bankrupt.

Russia’s defense ministry said the deployment would be made to the breakaway Donbas region of eastern Ukraine where much of the recent fighting had been focused.

What else I would do is offer his entourage money to defect or turn against him. Money can buy people and power.

What is alarming is that last week on LinkedIn it was posted that the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov was having talks with H.H Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed.

Whatever the Russians can offer there is going to be a better price or deal around the corner.

I would, just like Pontius Pilate wash my hands from this sorry son of a bitch. I would put such a price on his head for anyone to bring his head on a platter”.

If I had any say in Politics I would go to the leaders in the Middle East and give them an offer far better than what this “CRETIN P#TIN” is offering.

Every Ally that he turned to I would also do business with, by giving an offer that they could not refuse. Eventually all his money and blood gold would be worthless. I do hope history repeats itself and his fate is met that of his predecessors.

P#tin needs to be brought to justice and needs to be tried for w#r crimes. In w#r you do not target civilian life. if the Pope has sent a direct message to stop this massacre and he still does not have a conscious there is something seriously wrong with him in the head and no matter what he does the world would have lost all respect for him including from his own people.

Companies Pulling Out of Russia Daily.

Boycott Russia
Join The Revolution and Boycott Russia.

Fossil Fuel W#r!

I recently wrote about companies still in Russia but each day more and more are pulling out and ceasing trading.

However, even if the Russian Economy collapses the Russian Dictator has Gold reserves and money in offshore accounts not in his name to fund his evil plan regardless of what the rest of the world does to him.

Furthermore, someone as powerful as this P#tin, do you not think he has ways of moving his wealth?

Also, I will embed a video which is in Polish and what these people are saying that the Russians are going to Poland to stock up on medicines and food in lorry loads crossing to Belarus and then onto to Russia. So the sanctions are not being addressed properly by the Polish Government. I would stop all import-export to Russia and I would put a special tax or sanction visa as a security measure.

Here are some ways money can be moved:

  1. Blockchain
  2. Crypto Currency
  3. Digital Assets
  4. NFTs
  5. Money Laundering
  6. Precious Metals
  7. Precious Gems
  8. Artwork
  9. Dark Web
  10. Import Export by Lorrys.

The reason in layman’s terms why this w#r is happening is because the US President imposed sanctions ready for the New Green Deal which meant countries will be moving away from fossil fuel otherwise they will get heavy sanctions and fines.

It is no coincidence that we were told that energy prices were going to rise this spring way before w#r broke out.

This was already on the table and P#tin who supplies 1/3 of the gas and oil basically had to make Ukraine the scapegoat and an example to the west of what he can do if he does not get his way. He does not want his supply to be worthless but if I were him I would have re-evaluated and would have maybe started the largest solar energy provider and manufactured solar panels, turbines, etc. But P#tin is not a businessman, just a thug and his entourage whom may I add look like they come from the dark ages and set in their ways are no better.

The EU’s Green Deal has a new purpose — not just to fight against climate change, but also against Vladimir P#tin and Europe’s dependence on Russian gas.

The Russian president’s attack on Ukraine is creating newfound unity in cutting off one of Moscow’s biggest sources of cash. That’s something repeatedly promised during past times of Kremlin aggression, but it was never delivered.

https://www.politico.eu/article/putin-made-europe-green-deal-great-again/

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said it was “a focused acceleration of the European Green Deal” as a “strategic investment in our independence.” 

A large share of the initial savings would come from finding new suppliers of gas. But the EU wants to double down with a rapid boost of renewable energy and measures to cut energy use. Commission Green Deal chief Frans Timmermans called it “a huge opportunity.”

Now Ukraine which wanted to join the EU and Nato would have meant they too would have to do what all the other countries are doing and Russia who supplies 1/3 of the energy would start to feel a dent in their pockets if everyone went Green. This is now being dubbed the ‘Fossil Fuel War’ similar to the sanctions ‘Trade W#rs’ Trump imposed on China which caused them to retaliate with the C#v#d Pandemic. In order to understand why things happen in this world, we have to look at the bigger picture and uncover what world leaders do at the expense of the citizens. It’s a game of monopoly and who can win and not be defeated. So if all countries had sanctions imposed not to buy oil and gas from Russia, this would bring the country to its knees.

Washington is delegating for an embargo and sanctions on Russian oil and gas as a way of weakening Putin in the midst of his violent invasion of Ukraine. The move makes strategic sense: fossil fuels make up 60 percent of Russia’s exports and account for 40 percent of its federal budget. Literally what this means is oil and gas fuel Putin’s war machine.

Companies that have recently pulled out are:

Russia is becoming a commercial pariah,” said economist Mary Lovely, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “Pretty much no company, no multinational, wants to be caught on the wrong side of U.S. and Western sanctions.”

STOP TRADING WITH RUSSIA

The move to pull out of Russia is not only a humanitarian responsibility, it also is a political stance in order to comply with Western sanctions against Russia.

Companies are increasingly aware of the potential risks to their reputations by continuing with business as usual in the country.

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin of Russia said last week that it would help investors make “a considered decision” rather than succumb to the political pressure of sanctions. It’s not clear how that measure may affect corporations’ efforts to withdraw from Russia, but I am sure secret handshakes will be made.

Here is a running list of companies that have scaled back or cut ties with Russia.

Fossil fuels 

Western sanctions on Russia have for now excluded the energy sector, where Russia is a major player. The nation is the world’s third-largest producer of oil and the second-largest producer of natural gas. However, oil and gas companies, already feeling the heat from climate activists to invest in renewable energy, were among the companies that announced the most rapid and dramatic exits.

“A smart business proposal”

For many companies, exiting Russia is as much about business as it is about morality.

“It’s really tough to do business in Russia under the best of conditions. Now it’s become just crazy. So getting out is a smart business proposal,” said James O’Rourke, professor of management at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, who specializes in reputation management and business communications. https://5f464be4842b2c839c66f46a898c6d23.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

Two million people have fled Ukraine as of Thursday, according to the United Nations refugee agency.

Company commitments to environmental, social, and corporate governance, known as ESG, are being put to the test. ESG has become the acronym that’s increasingly seen as an important way for corporations to have responsible business credentials.

“But there can also be an element of ‘greenwashing,'” where companies say things that make it seem like they hold certain values or are on the right side of ESG issues while their practices and behavior suggest otherwise, Columbia Business School associate professor Vanessa Burbano said.

“Stakeholders like employees and consumers will want to see if companies’ actions and behaviors are consistent with the communicated support that companies are expressing for Ukrainians,” she said.

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

Where there is a will there is a way and I am not convinced that this w#r will be over anytime soon. It was projected that on day eleven P#tin would have run out of money to fund the w#ar, by day fifteen it is still going strong. His troops need food, he also needs to replenish his artillery so where is his money coming from? I believe he has a vault full of gold so who is buying his gold?

Just like sanctions on blood diamonds, there should be sanctions from blood gold. Any gold, artwork, cryptocurrency, NFTs, and digital assets should also be frozen coming from that country but I believe he is now in hiding in his fortress near the baltic sea with his entourage. Furthermore, all borders should be closed to stop import-export into Russia. Whilst borders remain open money, gold will exchange hands, but how do you stop a country going by land unless you make up special security visas which have to go through certain protocols that could take many months to be approved. Like I said where there is a will there is a way. How about offering the enemy a reward if they surrendered and give security when they have defected. They say you cannot buy people but if the country they live in has an economy on its knees imagine what they could do with the money you pay them. Currently, the Ruble is worth 6 pence which means 100 Rubles would be £6.00 One would have to make the troops worth their while. Imagine if each person was paid £100 in their money that would be 1,660.00 rubles.

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

I am by no means any way qualified to give political opinions but from a personal perspective and what I can see on a daily basis P#tin is a sore loser, his entourage is most probably scared of him hence will do whatever he tells them to do.

But what if you took the instigator out of the equation you would be left with a country that would have to reform. I personally would find out where his sorry arse is located and I would without warning drop a bombshell or two.

The way to find this pathetic example of a human being is to locate his family and friends (although I bet you he has none) then you will get to him. He has children and nannies and servents find out who actually works for him. I am sure that some use smartphones, tap into the phones, and track the phones via satellites.

According to reports The long-term girlfriend of Russian president Vladimir P#tin – Alina Kabaeva – has reportedly gone into hiding in Switzerland, together with the couple’s four young children. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/putin-hiding-olympian-lover-4-26399997

He is bound to be in contact with his girlfriend and children, I would start there. He also has two grown-up daughters living in Germany. In addition to his four children with Kabaeva, P#tin also has two adult daughters, 36-year old Maria and Katerina (35), both from his first marriage to Lyudmila Shkrebneva, a former flight attendant. Maria is married to a Dutch national, Jorrit Faassen, and lived in the Netherlands until recently. She is believed to have left Holland for her native Russia recently.

How hard is it to locate a person with modern technology and Artificial Intelligence? What one does is peel off the layers to find out who all the families are and the connections of all the people that need to be targeted and put surveillance on them all.

I would capture his girlfriend, family, and children’s location, going as far as detaining them to flush him out. His girlfriend has friends and family, I would put surveillance out on all of them.

I may not have any political experience but I used to run a security company with my ex-husband “Alan Barnes” called “Siren Security” in Cardiff in 1993 -2001 back in the day doing covert operations. Alan is sadly not with us now “God Bless his Soul”.

But this is what I would do to flush out this low life.

A true leader does not destroy lives he motivates and empowers people and will stand on the front line to show others how it is done. A true leader is someone like the “Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy”.

Boycott Companies Trading With Russia

UK ADVERTISMENT!

Disclaimer of the Brands In this Article. Many Brands are Switching Sides so you need to do your research before making a campaign. Every day more brands are washing their hands of the Russian Dictator. Shell has announced today they will no longer be trading with Russia.

Boycott Companies Still Trading in Russia.

We as citizens need to take a stand and support Ukraine from companies that continue to trade with Russia. This means putting pressure on corporations and refusing to buy their products, so even if you may love your coffee, beefburgers, and your fizzy pop, it is a small sacrifice to make to help put an end to this atrocity that is happening in Ukraine.

You would not only be helping our own Governments but you will also be helping people in Ukraine and trying to end this senseless w##.

The more companies that turn their backs on Russia eventually their economy will collapse. They need money to buy artillery, pay their military, and provide for their people.

If we can hit Russia in its pockets, they will eventually run out of money, but this also applies to putting a point across to the companies that are in bed with the enemy.

Global News has already published the outcry to boycott McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and Shell as these companies are still trading in Russia thus helping to fuel the fire.

It has been reported that three Ukrainian supermarket chains announced they are removing Coca-Cola products from their store shelves and the hashtags #BoycottCocaCola, #BoycottPepsi, and #BoycottMcDonalds were trending on Twitter over the weekend. However, people who support Ukrainians around the world should also take a stand against these companies until they join the rest of the world to help end this diabolical w##

Companies Still Trading With Russia:

Boycott Companies That Are Still Trading With Russia!

Citigroup Inc C -1.83%(Get Free Alerts for C): The Bank was trying to remove itself from Russia long before the Ukraine invasion, but it is trapped in a quagmire — efforts to sell its Russian consumer business is in limbo because the sole potential buyer, the Russian state bank VTB Bank, has been sanctioned by the U.S. government. In its defense, Citigroup CFO Mark Mason stated the bank might need to write off nearly approximately $9.8 billion.

Coca-Cola Co KO -2.37%(Get Free Alerts for KO): Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company AG, the Swiss-based firm distributing Coca-Cola products in Russia has not only shown no signs of suspending operations, but it also went so far as to tell the Russian news agency Tass: “All operational, production and logistics facilities of Coca-Cola in Russia are working. “We are fully responsible to partners, society, and thousands of our employees in Russia. Our top priority is the safety of our employees.” Coca-Cola announced it had halted production at its factory in Kyiv and evacuated its employees, yet is still doing business in Russia, which makes you wonder where their priorities lie?

Estée Lauder Companies Inc EL -7.56%:Thie hair and skin care and cosmetics provider which has headquarters in New York generates 2.7% of its revenue, or approximately $500 million, from sales in Russia. The company issued a statement on March 4 insisting it was “committed to supporting those impacted by the invasion of Ukraine,” adding that its “priority is the safety and well-being of all ELC employees, and we are continuously monitoring the situation and evaluating all possible measures to support them.”

Herbalife Nutrition Ltd HLF -0.06%:This multi-level marketing corporation gets 3% of its revenue, or approximately $150 million, from sales in Russia. On Feb. 23, the day before Ukraine was invaded, Herbalife President John DeSimone answered an earnings call question about the region and stated while there was a risk in Russia, “the biggest risk is probably in Ukraine, and it’s not a material country to us.

Hilton Hotels Corporation HLT -6.32%: Among the U.S. lodging companies, Hilton has 29 hotels in Russia; its sole Ukrainian operation is a hotel in the capital city of Kyiv. Hilton is still operating at the locations and the company has yet to make any public comment regarding the crisis in the region.

Kimberly-Clark Corp KMB -0.91%:The personal care product provider has been part of the Russian market since 1996 and generates 3% of its revenue, or $600 million, from sales in that country. In January 2019, it announced an $80 million to expand its Russian flagship factory in Stupino, a town 61.5 miles south of Moscow. Kimberly-Clark has not offered any public comment regarding Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

McDonald’s Corp MCD -4.88%: The fast-food giant gets 9% of its revenue from the Russia/Ukraine markets, or roughly 2.3% billion. The majority of its Russian locations are franchised by Russian Business Owners, yet the company has ignored growing demands from consumers and elected officials to shut down its Russian eateries.

Papa John’s International Inc. PZZA -7.76%: The Pizzaria chain has approximately 185 restaurants in Russia, headquartered in Atlanta USA. On the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call on Feb. 24, the day of the invasion, President and CEO Robert Lynch stated: “that any change to our restaurants in Russia will depend on how much disruption there is there and the impact of that business.” He continued to say he has no plans of closing any of the restaurants down and added the company had no restaurants in Ukraine.

PepsiCo Inc. PEP -1.99%: The Purchase, New York-based company is being pressured to rethink their business with Russia, with 4.4% of its revenue, or $3.4 billion, coming from that market, the firm is being pressured by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli who controls the state’s $280 billion pension funds, which includes PepsiCo shares, and he bluntly stated it would be in the company’s best interests to “address various investment risks associated with the Russian market.”

Starbucks Corporation SBUX -6.19%: The famous coffee house headquartered in Seattle has 130 licensed coffee shops in Russia; with no presence in Ukraine. The CEO Kevin Johnson is not forcing its Russian partners to close, he informed his workforce via an internal memo that the company “will donate any royalties we receive from our business operations in Russia to humanitarian relief efforts for Ukraine.”

Shell PLC said they would continue to buy crude oil from Russia so as not to disrupt the market for the consumer but with the news hitting headlines today that car fuel prices will be rising, I as a consumer would much prefer to buy fuel that is not laced with blood. https://news.sky.com/story/ukraine-war-fuel-prices-hit-new-uk-records-with-diesel-averaging-1-61-amid-warnings-of-worse-to-come-12559818

(At the time of this article going to press, it has been announced today Shell is now pulling out of Russia which is excellent news 🙂 I would have hoped that contacting the family office in the UAE had something to do with it).

The complete list of companies that remain can be seen below:

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

I have redacted some words as I have noticed that online censorship is causing certain articles to get flagged or banned so I have replaced certain letters with hashtags. I wrote about online censorship and words can get you struck off https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/2022/03/05/online-censorship/

I first noticed a problem when I used certain keywords like the Russian Dictators name in an article I wrote about how all Energy and Fuel Price Rises are going to increase poverty to unprecedented levels and how it will affect people’s mental health. This article kept coming back as a 500 sever error and my IT team could not understand what the issue was until I did a bit of digging and finally edited the article into three parts omitting certain words and phrases and not publishing the video that was controversial. You can read the edited article about Financial Difficulty here.

If you are finding your utility bills in the UK going to be unmanageable do consider changing utility providers.

Mental health can affect all people in all walks of life and poverty can cause poor mental health through social stresses, stigma, and trauma. When individuals find themselves in financial difficulty and perhaps do not have the necessities to survive, mental disorders such as depression or anxiety can develop and intensify. Mental health is also caused by grief. Grief can be caused by a number of situations such as the loss of a loved one through death, divorce, or separation. Grief can also be because of the loss of your home and worldly possessions as in the case of many millions of people in Ukraine right now.

If you have been affected by grief or are in financial difficulty I highly recommend you read the following articles I have written on this site and on another that I own:

  1. Coping With Grief
  2. Financial Difficulty
  3. Mental Health Useful Links

“If you found this post useful do take a moment to comment, share and subscribe”.

“Please don’t forget to do your part as a consumer to help stop this evil dictator and put an end to all the people dying”.

“This is now another reason why our prices are rising and inevitably our mental health getting worse”.

“If we come together and stand united we can conquer everything that faces us. My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine”.
