Genocide in Ukraine and European Banks: How the Indifference of the Latter Continues to Influence the Course of the War in Ukraine

Halftones disappeared, and after 113 days of the war, it became clear that some European states were not ready to go ahead in the fight against the Russian aggressor, but agreed, as before, to continue to cooperate with him as if nothing had happened. Money does not smell, of course, but now it often began to smell of blood and cadaveric rot of the victims of the genocide in Ukraine.

   However, this fact looks much more terrible and unpleasant: the world, and Europe in particular, swallowed the first phase of the Russian-Ukrainian war, which began in 2014, with the annexation of the Crimean peninsula and the war in Donetsk and Luhansk, with the subsequent formation of quasi-territorial terrorist entities. The then conspiracy of silence on the part of the European Union – no imposition of harsh sanctions and, even more so, a total economic embargo – to a large extent became a prerequisite for the continuation of Russian aggression against Ukraine. And, as time has shown, even a full-scale war did not become the trigger that could somehow shake the liberal European establishment, for which business is more important than the lives of Ukrainian citizens.

   How much more does Butch need for a real revision of attitudes towards Russia and its bloody money?

   How many more Ukrainian cities should be occupied in order to understand that it is impossible now to be just an observer. By continuing to work with Russian business, servicing its corporate accounts and the accounts of all individuals, continuing, in the end, continuing to buy oil and gas from Russia, a significant part of the European business establishment is financing, knowing this very well, the massacres of Ukrainians who are killed simply because they – Ukrainians.

   How soon will it be possible to forget Mariupol, turned into a burial ground? As it turned out, much easier. Too easy, to be honest. After all, the distance to it matters, but the lives of Ukrainians do not. Especially if you understand that the lives of our citizens were equivalently valued very, very cheaply.

   Ukrainian lives matter

   In the light of recent events for more than three months, it has become obvious that a number of states perceive Ukraine solely as an agro-industrial appendage, which, in general, is obliged, in spite of everything, and, first of all, to that perverted logic of war straight from the Kremlin, to ensure some kind of food stability For others. And, undoubtedly, the lack of Ukrainian grain globally can easily lead to starvation in third world countries.

   But the price of peace in Ukraine should not be the surrender of territories and the policy of agreeing that business has its own interests. Alas, now the very awareness of certain companies is a reputational marker. And if someone prefers to remain silent, quietly do business with Russia through affiliated partners, or even not really hide it, these companies bear the same responsibility for the genocide in Ukraine as the Russian authorities, along with their army of marauders and rapists and the people, whom all arranges.

   However, the war, both in the short term and in the long term – with the transition of the military conflict to the stage of cooling – can significantly throw back Ukraine as one of the leaders in IT and fintech areas. At the same time, well-known brands will continue and, most likely, increase their own weight, and among them are such well-known fintech startups as Revolut, Monobank, Riddletag, Lardansoft and others. It is not clear for certain what the post-war development of Ukraine will be like, since the war has entered the stage of viscous battles, with the intensification of terror in the occupied territories, the highlighting of which in the world media is beginning to smell of fatigue.

   Of course, multi-stage sanctions against the aggressor state will show their effectiveness in the long run, but there are many nuances that must and should be taken into account here and now. And we are talking, of course, about the banking system of some European countries along the axis Germany – France – Italy and the Baltic countries, where one way or another, cooperation with the business of Putin’s Russia continues, as if nothing had happened.
