Finland’s PM believes all Western businesses should pull out of Russia

Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin believes all Western companies should withdraw from Russia due to the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

That’s according to Yle, Ukrinform reports.

"All Western companies should cease their operations in Russia," Marin said.

According to the head of government, Finland is ready to impose new sanctions on Russia. She also believes that rising electricity prices do not stand in the way of new sanctions.

"People in Ukraine die every day and we must force this war to end. We must be ready to give up our own comfort for the sake of this," Marin said, emphasizing that Russia is waging an unfair, brutal, and inhumane war.

On February 24, the Russian Federation launched a new phase of its war against Ukraine – a full-scale invasion. Russian invaders have been shelling and bombing peaceful towns and villages in Ukraine, torturing and killing civilians.

The United States, the European Union, and other democracies have imposed and continue to impose sanctions on Russia.
