“This will cause us millions but freedom is worth more”
More companies continue to ban Russia on its platforms. Google also removes the monetization status from Russian state media days ago.
“Coming from Estonia we know the value of freedom all too well. Our parents and grandparents were waiting for the occupation to end to end for 48 long years. Europe cannot make the same mistake again”
“we are taking 3 big steps:
- Donating 5% of all European Bolt orders the next two weeks to support the Ukrainian people
- Removing Russian products from Bolt market
- Shutting down our operations in Belarus. These will cost us millions, but freedom is worth more” Villig posted.
