Gegen Finanzierung der Gewalttaten in Belarus, Professional Union of Belarusians in Britain (PUBB), September 2020

...We, the undersigned, hereby kindly request your comment on the cooperation between your company and the government of Belarus as well as with Belarusian state-owned companies.
We very much appreciate your company's activity as one of the most important partners of the Republic of Belarus. However, the situation has changed for the time being, which requires an appropriate response on your part. We are currently planning to publish a list of important companies that, through their collaboration with the Lukashenko regime, which is recognized neither by the international community nor the people of Belarus, are delaying its end and thus facilitating kidnappings, mass torture and murder of innocent citizens. A list of companies that not only declare European values, but also live these by temporarily suspending cooperation with the regime, will be published at the same time...
