Sanctions against Russia in general and the Urals in particular

Auchan, the largest food retailer, is not going to join the sanctions against Russia and will continue to work in the country. This was stated by CEO Yves Claude.

“The most important thing for us is to keep our employees and ensure the fulfillment of our main mission – to continue to feed the population of these two countries (Russia and Ukraine – URA.RU). We have never had another goal, “Clone said in an interview with the French agency Le Journal du Dimanche, commenting on the call of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to Auchan to withdraw from the Russian market.

The owner of the French retailer added that he considers all attempts to incite people of the two countries against each other useless. He stressed that the company came to the Russian market 20 years ago and currently employs about 30,000 Russians.

Sanction pressure on Russia has continued since the early 2000s and has intensified in recent months. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated that the purpose of the sanctions is to abolish the country, ban its culture, and taboo the truth about Russia’s history and its role in major world events. “I am talking about the progressive discrimination of everything related to Russia, about this trend, which is unfolding in a number of Western countries – with full connivance, and sometimes with the encouragement of the ruling elites,” said the head of state.
